Goodman Talks Business Incubators

I once had the pleasure of being a guest on the radio program “The Power of Knowledge.” Hosted by Dr. Marshall Goodman, VP and CEO of the University of South Florida Polytechnic, explores the state of education and other topics each Sunday morning at 11:30 on WLKF-AM 1430.

Besides, don’t you to get rid of those images of hatching eggs?

From the press release:

Last month the Central Florida Development Council announced it would provide funds to support one or more USF Polytechnic incubators. Business incubation programs catalyze the process of starting and growing companies by providing entrepreneurs with the expertise, networks and tools they need to make their ventures successful.

“A recent study showed that business incubators provide communities with significantly greater results at less cost than do any other type of public works infrastructure project,” says Goodman. “Business incubators are the most effective means of creating jobs.”

If you can’t be by the radio, you can find Sunday’s episode online a few days after it airs.
