SPARC is the umbrella organization for two distinct incubators focusing on different technology areas:

  • iCLEAN Incubator: Offers a suite of business and technical development services to clean tech start-ups.
  • Tech Valley Business Incubator: Offers a suite of business and technical development services to advanced technology, biotechnology, and advanced manufacturing start-ups.

Early Stage

Made up of students, faculty or simply someone with a great idea. SPARC supports this type of venture by creating a business plan or demonstrating proof of concept and technical feasibility of an idea or technology.

Formative

These companies have an idea, a prototype, a business plan, and no revenue. SPARC provides access to tools and equipment, introductions to investors and development partners, and strategic mentoring.

Established

These organizations have a proven product, but are looking for additional growth in new or different markets. SPARC assists them in exploring alternate product uses or untapped markets, reviewing the company's overall strategy, and assisting in the marketing of new products or services.
