The WTBC is a business development program located on the campus of the University of Wyoming. Opening in 2006, our 30,000 square-foot facility offers laboratory, office, and shared conference room space for client companies as well as collocation space in a state-of-the-art data center.
The WTBC focuses on developing early stage, technology-based companies, with an emphasis on high-growth firms. All client companies located in the incubator have access to one-on-one business counseling and executive coaching services provided by the WTBC staff. Statewide networking opportunities are available through an educational networking group called e2e Wyoming. Our program is designed to help client companies grow larger and faster than they would otherwise, and to increase the ability of the entrepreneurs to grow and manage their own businesses. Companies that graduate from the WTBC are more likely to establish their businesses in Wyoming, which is vital to the diversification of the state economy. In addition to diversifying and strengthening state and local economies, technology-based businesses lead to the creation of new jobs and the development of new technologies.
The WTBC is a member of the National Business Incubation Association (NBIA), which is the world's leading organization advancing business incubation and entrepreneurship. Each year, NBIA provides thousands of professionals with information, education, advocacy and networking resources to bring excellence to the process of assisting early-stage companies.
