Isle of Man Business Incubator is issuing a call to action for aspiring entrepreneurs.
The incubator, which was established in 2008 in partnership with Isle of Man Department of Economic Development, provides a mix of space and specialised services for fledgling business.
The focus of the incubator is to help entrepreneurs develop businesses with high-growth potential that will benefit the Isle of Man by creating jobs, diversify the economy, stimulate innovation, promote local sourcing, support Manx exports and international trade.
As well as supporting experienced entrepreneurs and companies with spin out products, the incubator can help Isle of Man residents with an idea or invention they wish to test and validate in a supportive low risk environment.
Isle of Man residents can apply for free tailored support.
It is hoped that the incubator programme might support those residents considering a move from employment to entrepreneurship.
Isle of Man Business Incubator can be contacted on 647065 or at www.iombic.im where enquiries to join the incubator can be made online.
