NIACC JPEC Incubator Awarded
Mott Foundation Grant
The NIACC JPEC Business Incubator was recently awarded a Mott Foundation Grant to help develop the concept of a virtual incubator, a business incubator unlimited by space. NIACC was one of ten colleges across the nation selected for this honor. The AACC initiative was recognized in a White House announcement on January 31 as an example of creative entrepreneurship to be encouraged by the new StartUP America Partnership “to celebrate, inspire and accelerate high-growth entrepreneurship throughout the nation,” as part of the Obama Administration’s national innovation strategy.
