About this grant

The program goal of this grant to the American Association of Community Colleges is to execute a small demonstration that will help community colleges understand their potential to function as virtual incubators to spawn and foster new small business development opportunities in direct response to market need and niche. In doing so, participating colleges will demonstrate ways for mature business leaders and emerging small business entrepreneurs to forge productive, symbiotic relationships that stimulate the growth of new local businesses.
