There is a major trend for traditional business incubators creating new food company incubation programs. In past years only about 2-3% of incubators (from the 7,000 that exist worldwide) have a program dedicated to food start-ups. Innovation.biz was created to be a resource for business incubators that either have a current food program or those that want to create one.

Potential clients and partners include:

  • New Food Start-ups
  • Regional Food Companies
  • Funding Groups
  • Retailers
  • Food Service Companies
  • Distributors
  • Ingredient Suppliers
  • International Manufacturers
  • Farmers/Coops

  • Market Research Companies
  • Farmer’s Markets

We have recently became media partners and trade association members with the INBIA (International Business Innovation Association – www.INBIA.org) with its headquarters based in Orlando, FL.
