SHORT TERM RENTAL OPPORTUNITIES: We occasionally rent kitchen space to non-members for community events, recipe testing, or for a short-term production space. We kindly request 1 month notice in advance for short term kitchen rentals. If you are interested, please email with the subject line “Short Term Rental” to learn more about availability and rates.

ENTREPRENEURIAL ASSISTANCE PROGRAM (EAP): If you aren’t quite ready to enter the incubator program, consider joining EAP – a theory based program to provide instruction, training, technical assistance and support services to individuals who have recently started their own business. Many EAP participants later become HBK Incubates Members. To find out more, email with the subject “EAP Inquiry”.
