The Anatomy of an Incubator

Posted on by Courtney Hendricson

Bourough 496 is a new business incubator in Hamden, supporting small businesses and serving as a regional asset for innovation as well as a productive institution in a critical neighborhood.

In this episode of CERCONOMY, CERC’s Vice President of Municipal Services, Courtney Hendricson, is joined by Dale Kroop, the Director of Economic Development and Neighborhood Revitalization for Hamden - and the mastermind behind the new incubator. 

Listen as Dale shares the story of how Borough 496 came to be and how they turned this once contaminated, former middle school into a unique space for budding entrepreneurs. 

In September, CERC hosted a webinar on the same topic.  You may watch the recording here
