Business Incubation: Local Entrepreneurship Growth


Within the Greater Dudley Square neighborhood, a network of business incubators and accelerators focused on a range of industry sectors (e.g. technology, creative economy, food services) have helped local entrepreneurs start businesses. A subset of these entrepreneurial businesses and other local small business owners would benefit from both affordable and flexible retail or co-working space that will allow them to grow and remain within the neighborhood.

TACC is partnering with local property owners to develop subsidized retail units that provide reduced rent, focused technical assistance, and marketing to business owners for the early stages of brick and mortar businesses in order to retain local businesses, generate additional employment opportunities for residents, reduce retail leakage, and enhance the overall retail environment.
