Description: There are over 40 certified incubators in Oklahoma. According to the National Business Incubation Association, the overall success rate for businesses that begin in an incubator is 80 percent. Business incubators provide a physical location in which a new business can commence, coupled with support services such as shared facilities and business advice. Incubators are designed to produce healthy firms that create jobs and wealth, strengthen the economy, commercialize new technologies and revitalize communities. They are sponsored by local governments, economic development agencies, universities, community colleges and vocational schools, private sector firms, and combinations of these groups.
