Legislative Council Approves Sale of Former Community Center to the Hamden Economic Development Corporation (HEDC). Project Progressing Towards Design and Construction.

11.18.2013

 

This week the Town of Hamden agreed to sell the former community building and school to HEDC in anticipation of the construction of a small business incubator. This incubator will

be the home to up to 20 small businesses. This environment

will encourage networking and business to business activities.  Funding the for the rehabilitation of the building will come from the Connecticut Department of Economic and Community Development and other sources such as Historic Tax Credits

and the Federal EPA.

 

The incubator will provide common amenities such as rest rooms, utilities, security, WiFi meeting space and a reception area. “The idea is to provide affordable space to very small businesses so that they could grow into larger space and create jobs for Hamden residents. The types of companies we will be looking for will be for business such as light manufacturing, web designers, small service businesses, medical office administrative functions, etc“, explained Dale Kroop, Executive Director of the HEDC.

 

An important feature of the Incubator will be Technical Service provided on site for business planning purposes. The Coordinator of the Business Assistance Center (BAC), Richard Pearce will provide on site help on an ongoing basis. The BAC will also conduct training for entrepreneurs for businesses from out side of the incubator. The services and seminar will focus on business planning and growth, access to funding, and growth planning and real estate assistance services.
