YBI MySpace Featured in Small Business Trends

The MySpace site of the Youngstown Business Incubator was highlighted by Small Business Trends this week. You can read the article here.

Check it out:
"With so many exciting Web 2.0 applications, you can quickly get the idea that the only place innovation happens is in Silicon Valley. And maybe Boston and Seattle.

But innovation takes place quietly all over America. It even takes place in former high-flying cities of earlier generations — cities that in their day were the equivalents of Silicon Valley. Cities like Detroit, Pittsburgh, Cleveland, Akron and others. Including Youngstown."

And from the Chief Evangelist:
"Within two weeks of our MySpace page going up, we were approached by three recent graduates of Youngstown State University. Each had lived in the Mahoning Valley their entire lives. Each graduated from college with a degree in computer science. Upon graduation, the three formed a software app development company, which is our sweet spot. They have developed a couple of software utilities that we are very excited about and we look forward to working with them on launching the products. But, until they saw our MySpace site, none of them had ever heard of YBI."

In other news, there is a new blog in out midst:

Youngstown Renaissance

If the first three posts are an indication of future work, this will be a very quality local blog.
