Then we are looking for you to join us! 

How To Apply

You will need to present a defensible plan to achieve financial viability within a reasonable period of time and demonstrate a need for assistance and a level of innovation to be accepted. Preference will be given to businesses demonstrating potential for rapid growth, the ability to generate sales outside of our local geographic area, and one or more of the following:

  • Have high employment potential
  • Export products or services
  • Replace imported products or services

Please provide a description of your market research and evaluation, customers, market size and trends, estimated market share and sales, competition, features that may give advantages over the competition. Your business(es) must be independently controlled with on-site decision-making ability and compatible with existing clients, and you must comply with all applicable laws and local moral standards.

Expectations for Member Entrepreneurs

You will be expected to make continual progress towards exiting the incubator facility. Within 30 days of entering the center, you will meet with a SMARTstart Incubator Manager, and together you will define and document agreeable milestones and progress reviews to establish an incubation exit strategy of two to three years.

The goal of the incubator program is to develop and retain graduated companies and jobs in Pasco County.
