Economic Growth Business Incubator (EGBI) is a non-profit organization which provides training, coaching, and support to aspiring and existing business owners who face barriers to growing a successful business.

We frequently work with micro and small business owners and a lot of the businesses that we work with are still in the design state and are not active yet; or they have been in business for less than five years. Some of the businesses who partner with EGBI could be considered informal businesses and the owners are ready to transition into a more structured business entity. Typical businesses that partner with EGBI are mom & pop businesses and lifestyle businesses.

Established since 2003, EGBI facilitates its services to entrepreneurs in Central Texas and the business acumen they acquire helps to yield traction to their small businesses, generating economic development, upward social mobility in our community, and an improved overall quality of life in our region.

As of 2023, our organization has provided over 4,200 hours of business coaching funded by a powerful combination of grants, contracts, and client contributions.

E.G.B.I. believes that all businesses should be profitable, sustainable and an asset to the community. To that end, we offer a comprehensive package of business coaching, group workshops, and support services for aspiring and existing businesses.

Cuando llegué a este estado, me sentí un poco insegura de continuar con mi empresa, ya que no conocía bien este mercado y no sabía cómo poder conectarme nuevamente. Por alguna razón, luego de buscar por muchos meses, talleres y grupos de profesionales, finalmente llegué a EGBI. Estoy muy agradecida, en especial con Monica Peña, ella tan profesional supo cómo darme esa seguridad de volver a conectarme. Todo lo que organiza EGBI es muy enriquecedor, además de tener un equipo tan profesional, que maneja cada taller de manera tan organizada. En cada encuentro se aprende bastante y es muy motivador para cualquier dueño de empresa o quien esté pensando emprender un negocio. Gracias EGBI.

The team at EGBI are amazing. In addition to the quality content, their welcoming and inclusive nature really helped to bolster the "I can do this" attitude that I was needing. I just can't say enough about the materials, the activities, and the community guests. The staff are well informed, caring individuals who deliver solid information in an environment of support. I would highly recommend EGBI to anyone thinking about starting or enhancing their business.
