Spaceworks’ Incubator offers a variety of services to help creative entrepreneurs and business owners gain training and knowledge in business basics, strategy, and skills. Our two core programs are the Business Launch Cohort, a 36-hour course over 12 weeks, and the Business Foundations Cohort, a 12 hour course over 4 weeks. Both cohorts occur twice a year.

Business Foundations Cohort focuses on the idea phase of business for 4 weeks. Some of the class highlights are understanding the ‘why’ behind your business, what business structure is best for you, and developing your vision, mission, and values statements. At the end of this cohort, you will have a clear understanding of your business foundations and the next steps to move forward and make it happen.

Business Launch Cohort focuses on those business that have tested their product or service in the market and have a clear understanding of what they are providing to the customer. At the end of this 12 week cohort, you will have gained the knowledge to successfully run your business, a completed business plan, and will have presented your pitch to the public at your Graduation.

We work with a fantastic roster of business owners, experts, and professionals, from our coaches and resource providers to our alumni. Sometimes they teach us how to do what they do, and we provide a platform for them to share these skills with the cohorts.
