The Town of Herndon is exploring the creation of a new business incubator.

The project is intended to promote e-commerce and establish the town as a tech-savvy area.

Partnerships could include George Mason University, Virginia Small Business Development Center, and Office Evolution, an office space rental agency based in Herndon. Overall, the incubator would offer education and training for entrepreneurs and small business in an effort to boost business growth and overall independence.

The project is in the early planning phases.

“The Town Council has not yet adopted a resolution authorizing the incubator project; that is anticipated to come before the council at its December meeting,” town spokesperson Anne Curtis wrote in a statement to FFXnow.

At a meeting in mid-October, the town council explored the possibility of the project.

Office Evolution would act as the incubator for the project. Mason Enterprise Center Services, a business development service affiliated with GMU, would offer programatic support, including access to its mentor team, discounts for recruiting and payroll services, and access to capstone students and interns.

The project could also include counseling and training services, along with information on marketing, sale, financing and financial management.
