Introducing  the  Alberta  Small  Business 
Incubator  Support  Program 

The  Alberta  Small  Business  Incubator  Support  Program  aims  to  increase  the  growth  and  success 
of  small  business.  It  is  administered  by  Alberta  Economic  Development  and  Trade. 

The  Incubator  Program  will:  (1)  accelerate  efforts  to  establish  incubators  through  local/provincial 
cooperative  efforts;  (2)  provide  professional  and  technical  assistance  to  communities  interested 
in  establishing  incubators;  and,  (3)  contribute  to  local  economic  development. 

Small  business  incubators  provide  new  enterprises  with  common  space,  shared  services,  direct 
management  counselling  and  access  to  a broad  range  of  professional,  technical  and  financial 
services.  Small  business  incubators  have  proven  to  be  an  effective  method  of  linking  technology, 
capital  and  “know-how”  to  leverage  entrepreneurial  talent. 

Incubators  can  be  adapted  to  suit  a variety  of  new  small  business  and  community  needs. 
Incubators  may  be  technology-oriented  or  nontechnical,  urban  or  rural,  non-profit  or  profit- 
making, public  or  private  ventures,  locally  owned  or  part  of  a chain. 

The  Incubator  Support  Program  will  assist  with  the  costs  of  developing  and  operating  an 
incubator.  Grants  are  provided  to  match  funding  from  local  sources.  Costs  not  covered  by  the 
Program  (e.g.  capital)  are  the  responsibility  of  the  local  incubator  developer.  The  local  incubator 
developer  may  be  a sole  proprietorship,  general  partnership,  limited  partnership,  co-operative 
association,  corporation,  professional  corporation  or  any  authorized  representative  of  a local 
government  or  a local  development  organization. 

A feasibility  study  and  a business  plan  are  necessary  in  order  to  be  considered  for  funding  of 
operations  under  the  Program.  The  Terms  of  Reference  in  the  appendices  outline  the  research 
required  to  determine  feasibility  and  the  information  required  in  the  business  plan.  Both 
feasibility  and  business  plan  development  activities  are  eligible  for  funding. 

Incubator  developers  should  carefully  review  the  Program  Guidelines.  The  Program  Administrator 
and  staff  of  Alberta  Economic  Development  and  Trade’s  Regional  Offices  are  available  to  work 
directly  with  local  incubator  developers.  Their  professional  advice  and  technical  assistance  on 
assessing  markets  for  an  incubator  will  be  particularly  helpful  (refer  to  Appendix  E of  these 
Program  Guidelines  for  telephone  numbers  and  addresses). 

By  assisting  with  the  establishment  of  incubators,  the  Alberta  Small  Business  Incubator  Support 
Program  actively  encourages  small  business  development  in  order  to  further  promote  economic 
growth  and  diversification.  The  Program  complements  existing  programs  of  support  for 
entrepreneurial  and  small  business  development.

Project  Title 

Feasibility  Study  for  a Small  Business  Incubator  in  the  Community  of 


Purpose 

To  study  the  feasibility  of  an  incubator  program  in  the  community  of 

Objectives  Should  Include: 

1 . Analyse  the  Local  Economy 

To  determine  if  the  community  has  the  market  for  an  incubator,  three  major  aspects  of  the 

local  economy  should  be  analysed: 

(i)  Characteristics  of  Major  Corporations  in  the  Area 

• nature  of  each  Corporation’s  business  (i.e.,  type  of  business  and  industry,  sales, 
revenues,  number  of  employees,  level  of  spin-off  activity). 

• analysis  of  each  Company’s  source  of  supply  (i.e.,  major  suppliers  and  their  location, 
product  or  service  provided,  annual  dollar  volume). 

(ii)  Assessment  of  Entrepreneurial  Activity 

• number  and  type  of  new  business  start-ups  over  the  previous  three  to  five  years  by 
business  registrations,  permits  and  licences  issued. 

• level  and  extent  of  participation  in  business  organizations,  associations,  clubs, 
societies,  etc. 

• level  and  extent  of  participation  in  business  and  pre -business  education  courses, 
conferences,  seminars,  workshops,  etc. 

• number  and  type  of  new  business  failures. 

• number  of  start-up  business  plans  being  considered  by  local  banks,  lawyers, 
accountants,  etc. 

• number  of  home-based  businesses,  both  licensed  and  unlicensed. 

(iii)  Commercial  Real  Estate  Supply  and  Demand 

• supply  of  available  commercial  space  in  terms  of  rent  level  and  type  of  property  and  the 
length  of  the  average  commercial  lease  offered  by  type  of  business  activity. 

• demand  for  commercial  space  in  terms  of  vacancy  rate  by  type  of  property  and  the 
number  of  business  permits  issued  by  type  of  business  over  the  last  12  months. 


2.  Assess  the  Existing  Business  Support  Network 

(i)  Examine  the  degree  to  which  the  community  has  formalized  its  support  for  small  business 
by  assessing: 

• availability  of  locally  sponsored  business  and  pre-business  education  courses, 
conferences,  seminars,  workshops,  etc. 

• strength  of  small  business  community  membership  in  organizations  supporting  small 
business  issues. 

• availability  and  accessibility  of  start-up  and  expansion  financing  for  small  business. 

• business  climate  including  taxation  policies,  procedures  for  acquiring  licences  and 
permits,  existence  of  zoning  restrictions,  etc. 

• formal  and  informal,  public-private  programs  providing  specialized  technical  assistance 
(i.e.,  invention  evaluation  services,  business  assistance  counselling,  etc.). 

• community  awareness  of  importance  of,  and  contributions  by,  small  business 
economically  and  whether  or  not  the  local  media  provide  information  about  small 
business  issues  or  of  interest  to  small  business. 

(ii)  Examine  the  community’s  previous  experience  with  this  type  of  public  joint  ventures  and 
the  potential  for  cooperation  on  this  type  of  venture. 

(iii)  Determine  the  potential  impact  of  an  incubator  on  existing  businesses  in  the  community. 

3.  Analyse  the  foregoing  in  terms  of: 

• major  strengths  and  weaknesses; 

• gaps  in  information  collected  and  resources  identified;  and 

• strategies  for  gathering  additional  information,  gaining  other  resources,  involving  other 
key  organizations. 

4.  Goals 

Define  the  goals  and  objectives  for  the  incubator  within  the  community’s  broad  economic 
development  strategy. 

(i)  Develop  specific,  measurable  objectives  for  achieving  the  incubator’s  goals. 

(ii)  Develop  the  focus  of  the  incubator. 

• organization  of  the  management  (non-profit,  for-profit) 

• type  of  tenants  by  Standard  Industrial  Classification 

• type  of  facility 

• location  of  facility. 

5.  Identify  and  Select  a Suitable  Site  and  Facility 

After  establishing  the  focus  of  the  incubator  and  given  the  specific  needs  of  the  types 
of  businesses  to  be  served  by  the  incubator  and  their  particular  space  and  location 
requirements,  define  the  type  of  space  required  by  the  tenants.  In  cases  where  an 
alternative  to  centralizing  the  tenants  in  a single  common  facility  may  be  considered, 
the  site  and  facility  selection  process  should  define  the  type  of  space  required  by  the 
incubator  management. 


Factors  to  be  considered  in  the  site  selection  process  include: 

• ample  space  for  all  tenants 

• suitable  area  for  shipping  and  receiving 

• sufficient  parking 

• proximity  of  site  to  tenant’s  supplies 

• storage  space 

• site  location  relative  to  major  transportation  routes 

• zoning  regulations  (i.e.,  commercial/industrial  multi-use) 

• potential  for  expansion 

• security 

• building  codes  (i.e.,  basic  minimum  requirements) 

• labor  standards  (i.e.,  quality  of  workplace). 

6.  Presentation 

Prepare  and  present  recommendations  to  the  Steering  Committee  on  the  viability  of  operating 
an  incubator  in  the  community  and  the  advisability  of  proceeding  with  the  development  of  a 
Business  Plan.
