Economic Development Policies Through Business Incubation and Co-working: A Study of San Francisco and New York City

Salinger, Jordan Harrison

The growth of business incubators and co-working spaces since 1980 has been incredibly rapid, with nearly 1,400 facilities currently operating in the United States. San Francisco and New York lead the way, with public and privately-run facilities fueling business growth. Through my research, which includes 15 structured open-ended interviews, and geographic information systems analysis, I hope to determine if and how industrial plans and targeting should be carried out, how the governmental policies are different in each of the cities as it relates to the public funding of incubators, and how the impacts of industrial targeting and land use strategies impact start-up web-based software firms.
