Boise's New Green Job "Incubator" is Part of Economic Recovery Plan

The success of a start-up business incubator in Boise has given rise to the launch of a new green business incubator focused on alternative energy.

Idaho Business Review reports:

"Boise Mayor Dave Bieter announced the creation of a new business incubator to support local alternative energy startups during his State of the City address...
The 'Green House,' which will occupy a soon-to-be-vacant city-owned building at 5th and Idaho streets, will offer office space and support services like free legal and accounting help for start-up green businesses. The city hopes to begin the project later this year. Bieter highlighted Mark Rivers’ WaterCooler business incubator project, which he called “an enormous success,” as a model to grow new businesses.
Bieter highlighted Mark Rivers’ WaterCooler business incubator project, which he called “an enormous success,” as a model to grow new businesses during his speech at the Boise Centre on the Grove. The WaterCooler, a 10,000-square-foot facility at 1401 W. Idaho St., now houses about a half-dozen startup companies after opening in May 2008." See full article.
