Application Process Begins For Cincinnati's Newest Incubator Program For Entrepreneurs Interested candidates should apply for the program by Fri, March 2. Cincinnati, OH (I- Newswire) February 09, 2012 - Two successful minority business owners, Steven Easley and Ben Hanania, will be heading the newest Cincinnati Small Business Incubator, along with the support of CMC Properties and technology partner, PowerNet Global. Together, Easley and Hanania have 29 years of small business startup successes and both share a passion for growing small business. The Cincinnati Small Business Incubator will provide entrepreneurs with the opportunity to pursue launching a new business with the support of others and the resources needed to build a strong foundation, thereby improving their chances of success. Centrally located in the Tri- County area and the growing northern Cincinnati submarkets, the incubator will provide mentoring and training in addition to business resources such as an office space, shared conference rooms, communications, administrative staff, branding/ marketing, and more. Participating businesses will save time and money by sharing costs to minimize their capital expenditure and avoiding the time- draining hassle of acquiring resources on their own. "Starting a new business is tough. The unfortunate fact is that the majority of start- ups fail. In most cases it's because of a combination of too little business knowledge and a failure to control expenses. But it doesn't have to be that way. Our goal is to address both of these issues by providing the resources, mentorship, training and guidance needed, and thus tip the odds strongly in favor of the success of the new business owner, and in so doing, jumpstart regional economic growth by helping more new businesses grow and contribute to the economic health of the entire region."
