This category is for sites for and about small business incubators. A small business incubator is a physical facility, which provides offices, warehousing and manufacturing space, shared board/meeting space, kitchen facilities and a common reception area. The incubator provides a receptionist to greet visitors and to assist tenants in using a shared copier, fax, and audio-visual equipment and often times computers. The incubator manager assists tenants in preparing business plans, securing financing, business counseling and management advising. Tenants are expected to graduate from the incubator within a reasonable time frame to allow others to use the service. The incubator recoups costs by charging reasonable lease rates and fees and charges for the use of specialized services and equipment. Sites for companies providing finances and consulting services, but no physical facilities should be listed under Business/Financial_Services/Venture_Capital/.
