What is This Business Incubator Anyway?

Apr 29, 2015 11:05AM ● Published by Kevin

On New Year's Day, the Middletown Area Chamber of Commerce (MACC) announced sponsorship of the area's first business incubator. 
 
"We've worked hard to create an environment that is supportive of business and look forward to the opportunity to support and champion entrepreneurs," said Tony Martina, MACC Chairman.

The chamber partners with Middletown Main Street to make this project a reality. The chamber is will hold its grand opening for the area's first business incubator from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on May 14.

Many Middletown small business owners operate from home, according to the chamber. The incubator will allow 10 of them to operate from office facilities.

"We're really excited to help new businesses start in Middletown, work with them to achieve their goals and move them into a downtown or Middletown area location where they can continue to thrive," said Tracy Skrobot, Middletown Main Street Coordinator.

The new facility will offer businesses the opportunity to share collaborative workspace, rent offices and take advantage of copier services, wifi, mail services and welcome clients in a state of the art facility. 

The location is a 3,300-square-foot suite, which is in a small office park on North Cass Street. The building is also the new headquarters for the chamber, which celebrates 43 years this year.

Anyone looking for office space in Middletown or thinking of starting a business locally should contact the MACC for more information on office space and support for businesses looking to come to Middletown.
