Business Incubator

The WorcShop will be a major force in the revitalization of Central Massachusetts as an entrepreneurial center for New England. We'll accomplish this by promoting artistic/engineering endeavors, non-traditional educational initiatives, and technological research and development, while simultaneously securing Worcester’s place at the leading edge of the new "Innovation Economy.”
