Small business boost: Brown backs business incubator bill

March 1, 2012

Democratic U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown proposed business incubator legislation he says would create business incubators that would ultimately lead to more jobs in Ohio.

The bill, deemed the Business Incubator Promotion Act (BIPA)  is aimed at creating high-skill, high wage jobs across the state. Brown said that an independent report completed by the Economic Development Council (EDA) has indicated that every $10,000 in EDA funds invested in business incubators has led to the creation of 47 to 69 jobs in the state.
