Incubator

The Insight Business Incubator works with entrepreneurs at early stages of the development of their ideas. These may be technologies that need financial support, management, basic or applied science, clinical research studies, patents, or other assistance.

Insight hosts a Clinical Research Organization, performing patient studies for Incubator clients, as well as studies that are contracted from established medical device or pharmaceutical firms.

To help serve incubator companies, we have an ever-expanding panel of collaborators and other contacts in finance, law, engineering, and manufacturing, as well as university faculty in a breadth of disciplines.

Together with our growing national and international network of collaborators, the overall goal of the Incubator is to support start-up and spin-out firms with a focus on growth in Flint and Genesee County.
