This month's issue of OMMA explores the nature of tech incubators, with a particular focus on SparkSpace, a tech incubator located in New York's Silicon Alley. The article focuses on how start-ups, like game design firm Socialbomb, can used an incubator to grow its business and to have a real office presence. The company also enjoys the benefits of working in proximity to other tech companies in the incubator, while would be investors can learn more about new companies before committing funds.
SparkSpace was founded in 2007 by serial entrepreneur David Rose and his Silicon Alley based investment firm Rose Tech Ventures. Its entrepreneur-in-residence Nate Westheimer (and NY Tech Meetup organizer) mentors many of the start-ups participating in the incubator.
