Local business owners can now get the advice and support they need at Florida State University’s Panama City campus. Local leaders marked the Grand Opening of the Business Innovation Center - or "BIC".
BIC provides resources to local small businesses and is dedicated to helping them grow. A spokesperson for BIC says this is a new verison of what used to be the Bay County small business incubator.
Chairman of the Board of Directors Andrew Levy says "What we want to do now is we want to be part of that discussion. We want to be one of those tools in the tool box so to speak for entrepreneurs to access and grow."
The Business Innovation Center will also provide internship opportunities to both Gulf Coast State College and FSU-PC students. The BIC is accepting applications for clients.
