The production based incubator/accelerator is the most recent economic development project in Hardee County. The Industrial Development Authority is partnering with the Economic Development Authority to transform a currently blighted building into a space for entrepreneurs to grow their ideas. The facility will feature a functioning fill line that is capable to do various size runs, marketing specialist and ample room. The facility can meet multiple needs for entrepreneurs.
The goal of the incubator/accelerator is to take businesses and assist them from conception to functioning sustainable companies. The businesses then will be able to locate outside of the incubator/accelerator and flourish independently in Hardee County.
