IT startups have been engaging in this conversation for years, leading to the creation of several successful co-working facilities. But what about other industries? Can the “incubator model” be re-imagined across entrepreneurial ventures to foster other successful innovative ecosystems?

BSA’s Committee for Research and Innovation Design overwhelmingly decided the answer is yes, at its inaugural meeting last week at LabCentral in Boston.

The presentation, which Annie gave together with MIT campus planner Robert Boes, was among the subjects highlighted by Scott Carlson’s coverage of the conference in this week’s Chronicle of Higher Education.
