August 2013 — Present
The mission of the Business Innovation Center (BIC) is to foster entrepreneurship through a structured model that provides tools and metrics for success to emerging innovation-based enterprises. By fulfilling this mission, the BIC can contribute to job creation and provide for enhanced economic health in Northwest Florida.
The BIC will provide new and emerging innovative businesses with an environment to support their start-up phase and increase their likelihood of success. Currently, the BIC includes facility space at FSU-PC, offering flexible leases, shared use of common office equipment, direct business assistance and guidance, mentoring, networking to capital, and other technical resources. The BIC will deliver more than office space – it will seek to provide the ideal blend of business opportunities, resources and synergies to enhance entrepreneurial success in Northwest Florida.
