The Tejara Center, which is a mixed-use international business incubator and accelerator that supports the development and growth of entrepreneurs from various industries, is proud to announce that it is open for business and accepting applications for its resident and virtual memberships. The Tejara Center was founded on the idea that comprehensive business development and support services provided to small and early stage businesses would foster successful entrepreneurship and strong growth potential for start-ups and existing businesses.
The Tejara Center provides a variety of professional support services and resources, with an emphasis on entrepreneurship and export, to its member companies by a knowledgeable support team comprised of Tejara Center personnel and advisers, affiliate business professionals, mentors/coaches, and governmental agencies with expertise in business development and export. The services and programs offered include one-on-one business coaching and mentorship, business acceleration programs, access to networking opportunities and events as well as connections to export resources and global markets. We are also uniquely positioned to assist the immigrant and ethnic communities by leveraging our multi-cultural knowledge and international relationships.

- Show an average increase in employment of 2.7 full-time and 1.0 part-time positions per year
