Incubate Your Business Start Up
We All Incubate Our Start Up
Silicon Valley, Santa Clara, California: Silicon Valley is famous for technology startups and its goal is to never lose the distinction of being "the place" for innovation. The Enterprise Network (TEN) houses over a dozen start-ups working to bring new technologies to the marketplace. At TEN they find low-cost office space and mentors who guide them. You will meet the men who run the incubator and a number of the entrepreneurs who depend upon the leadership and camaraderie offered here.
According to the National Business Incubation Association, there are about 5,000 incubators worldwide. Just in the USA there are about 1,100.
We chose this incubator because it became famous during the dot-com boom and it is situated close to Stanford University.
Stanford was early to the idea of technology licensing. Technology licensing has assisted faculty and students in the process of launching companies which in turn have created thousands of jobs and brought millions of dollars into Stanford University. Stanford enjoys the "success breeds success" principal so things are popping there. In this program we go to the campus to see how one PhD student is working to commercialize his discoveries.
