Some universities or regions will have economic development centers, and some regions will have organizations. These are good for the student entrepreneur to keep an eye on and become aware of for potential resources.
“Economic Development Centers and Organizations are responsible for creating, managing, and supervising programs and activities that promote, assist and enhance economic development. They focus their economic development efforts on the creation of jobs and new investment in a region. These centers typically do not offer space or formal programming for entrepreneurs and startups.” – International Business Incubation Association (InBIA)
