Business Incubation Overview
GIST Business Incubation brings together the best international science & technology innovators and American businesses to increase cross-market access and to create opportunities for collaboration. While in residence at incubators across the United States, entrepreneurs have opportunities to make connections with the local entrepreneurial ecosystem and build business relationships for potential partners and investors. GIST Business Incubation also helps American businesses gain awareness of global entrepreneurs, innovations and markets.
In the coming year, GIST will be running three new Business Incubation programs: one specifically designed for citizens of Ukraine (OPEN NOW!), one specifically designed for citizens of Bhutan, and one designed for any citizen of the more than 130 countries GIST works in.
