  22. 22. BLURRED LINES: INCUBATORS, ACCELERATORS & COWORKING PHX STARTUP WEEK | FEBRUARY 26, 2016 OTHER QUESTIONS HOW DO I KNOW IF I’M READY? IF YOU KNOW YOU NEED HELP AND ARE COMFORTABLE ASKING FOR IT, YOU ARE READY. IF YOUR BUSINESS IS AT ANY STAGE BUT ESPECIALLY AT A CRITICAL POINT IN ITS LIFECYCLE, YOU ARE READY. IF YOUR GARAGE IS NO LONGER A VIABLE BUSINESS ADDRESS OR MEETING SPACE, YOU ARE READY. IF YOU ARE IN NEED OF FUNDING AND YOU ARE WILLING TO BE PATIENT AND COACHABLE, YOU ARE READY. IF YOU HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THE HELL YOU ARE DOING, YOU ARE READY. HOW MUCH WILL IT COST? IT DEPENDS. SOME CHARGE A MONTHLY RENT FOR SPACE & MEMBERSHIP; OTHERS CHARGE A PROGRAM FEE. SOME OF THESE CAN BE AT A PREMIUM AND OTHERS MAY BE AT OR BELOW-MARKET BASED ON SUBSIDIES FROM GOVERNMENT OR OTHER PUBLIC AGENCIES. SOME ARE SOLELY FOCUSED ON EXCHANGING FUNDING FOR COMPANY EQUITY. MANY PROGRAMS ALSO PROVIDE BASELINE SERVICES AND OFFER OTHER PAY-FOR-SERVICE RESOURCES TO ITS CLIENTS, WHICH MAY OR MAY NOT BE DISCOUNTED. THESE ONGOING COSTS CAN VARY. LASTLY, SOME ENTITIES HAVE POST-GRADUATE COSTS, E.G. SUCCESS FEES (AGREEMENT TO DONATE OR GIFT FINANCIAL COMPENSATION AFTER ACHIEVING CERTAIN MILESTONES) AND WARRANTS (PERCENTAGE OF GAIN REALIZED AFTER SUCCESSFUL EXIT) WHAT IF I CANNOT AFFORD IT? MANY PROGRAMS HAVE FLEXIBLE PAYMENT OPTIONS AND THERE ARE GRANT / AWARD OPPORTUNITIES THAT COULD SUBSIDIZE A PORTION OF THE FEE. NUMEROUS FREE RESOURCES, SUCH AS THE SMALL BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT CENTER (SBDC) NETWORK AND SCORE ARE AVAILABLE AS WELL.
  23. 23. BLURRED LINES: INCUBATORS, ACCELERATORS & COWORKING PHX STARTUP WEEK | FEBRUARY 26, 2016 OTHER QUESTIONS DO I NEED TO WORRY ABOUT PROTECTING MY INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY? THE MAJORITY OF INCUBATORS AND ACCELERATORS HAVE SPECIFIC GUIDELINES AND SERVICES REGARDING INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY – STAFF NDA FORMS, MENTORSHIP AGREEMENTS, IP AUDITS AND STRATEGIES, ETC. ACADEMIC INSTITUTIONS AND CORPORATE PROGRAMS ALSO HAVE RULES FOR TECHNOLOGY TRANSFER TO DETERMINE THE MANNER IN WHICH A STARTUP CAN PURSUE THE COMMERCIALIZATION OF ITS INNOVATION. COWORKING SPACES DO NOT TYPICALLY OFFER SPECIAL GUIDELINES FOR IP. IN ADDITION, COMPANIES THAT PREFER TO OPERATE WITH A LOW-PROFILE CAN REQUEST IT NOT BE CITED IN MARKETING OR OTHER INITIATIVES. HOWEVER, MOST PROGRAMS WILL INCLUDE AGGREGATE IMPACT (JOB, REVENUE, INVESTMENT) DATA FOR ALL OF ITS CLIENTS. HOW CAN I PREPARE MY COMPANY TO BE SELECTED? BE OPEN AND HONEST ABOUT YOUR STRENGTHS, NEEDS, AND CHALLENGES AS A COMPANY AND HOW YOU FEEL YOUR BUSINESS WILL BENEFIT FROM ITS RESOURCES. FOLLOW THROUGH ON DELIVERABLES AND TASKS. INCUBATORS AND ACCELERATORS OFTEN REQUIRE A PITCH PRESENTATION OR INTERVIEW, SO INVEST THE TIME TO PREPARE FOR IT. IS THERE A NEGATIVE PERCEPTION TO ENROLLING? YES AND NO. SOME FUNDING GROUPS LOOK TO BUSINESS INCUBATORS AND ACCELERATORS AS A FORM OF DUE DILIGENCE FOR WELL- VETTED COMPANIES; OTHER OUTSIDE ENTITIES MAY DOWNGRADE A COMPANY BECAUSE IT IS PERCEIVED AS SHOWING WEAKNESSES OR GAPS, PARTICULARLY IN LEADERSHIP. DO PROGRAMS HAVE AN MINIMUM AGE REQUIREMENT? NOT REALLY. PROGRAMS LOOK MORE AT BUSINESS SPECIFICS AND OVERALL LEADERSHIP AND EXECUTION ABILITIES WITHIN THE TEAM, WHICH MAY OR MAY NOT BE A FUNCTION OF AGE. ADDITIONALLY, MANY OFFER YOUTH-BASED (MIDDLE SCHOOL, HIGH SCHOOL, COLLEGE) PROGRAMS DESIGNED FOR YOUNGER DEMOGRAPHICS.
  24. 24. BLURRED LINES: INCUBATORS, ACCELERATORS & COWORKING PHX STARTUP WEEK | FEBRUARY 26, 2016 OTHER QUESTIONS HOW MANY EXIST IN ARIZONA? THERE ARE 15+ ENTITIES THAT RUN INCUBATOR AND/OR ACCELERATOR PROGRAMS, WITH AS MANY AS 34 CITED BY THE ACA. FOR INSTANCE, NACET (BASED IN FLAGSTAFF) MANAGES THREE INCUBATORS (NACET, CHANDLER INNOVATIONS, MARICOPA CENTER FOR ENTREPRENEURSHIP) AND AN ACCELERATOR IN NORTHERN ARIZONA. COWORKING DATA IS HARDER TO ESTABLISH, BUT THERE ARE AT LEAST 15 SELF-DESCRIBED “COWORKING” SPACES ACROSS THE STATE AND NUMEROUS UNOFFICIAL HANGOUTS FOR ENTREPRENEURS; ACA LISTS AT LEAST 40 IN ARIZONA. SEVERAL, SUCH AS CO+HOOTS AND GANGPLANK, OFFER MULTIPLE LOCATIONS. DO YOU ALL GET ALONG WITH EACH OTHER? NO COMMENT… JUST KIDDING   PHOENIX IS SELF-PROCLAIMED THE MOST “GENEROUS” ECOSYSTEM, AND WE ALL RECOGNIZE THE UNIQUE VALUE AND DIFFERENTIATORS OF ONE ANOTHER. A RICHER EXPERIENCE FOR THE ENTREPRENEUR IS GOING TO BENEFIT THAT COMPANY IN THE LONG RUN.
