The Battle Creek area has one incubator kitchen on Dickman Road (Sprout Market, old Springfield market). How will the Tiger Room collaborate with Sprout’s kitchen? Will the Tiger Room provide more options/more accessories than Sprout kitchen? (Full question.)
The Tiger Room is designed to provide an opportunity for companies that have moved beyond the incubation stage. As such, Sprout Market Incubator and the Tiger Room Accelerator will complement each other. The Tiger Room will be another asset for our food-rich town. Early in the grant process, it was required that there be a demonstrated need. Multiple early-stage companies throughout the region have indicated a need for this acceleration space.
