Business Incubation Overview
GIST Business Incubation brings together the best international science & technology innovators and American businesses to increase cross-market access, open doors for joint ventures, and gain investor exposure.
While in residence in business incubators in U.S. markets such as Detroit, Kansas City, Phoenix, and Colorado Springs, global entrepreneurs have opportunities to make connections to the local entrepreneurial ecosystem and build business relationships. American businesses gain awareness of foreign generated innovation and markets.
We have exciting news about this program. This year, 2022, GIST will be opening three new Business Incubation programs: one specifically designed for citizens of Ukraine, one specifically designed for citizens of Bhutan, and one designed for any citizen of the more than 130 countries GIST works in.
