Fun People! Serious Business.

We're more than just an incubator. The YBI maintains a focus on developing successful digital businesses, advancing women’s & minority entrepreneurship, and furthering advanced manufacturing technologies.


The Youngstown Business Incubator is excited to present this year’s fundraising event, “Shark Tank” — an opportunity to showcase entrepreneurship and innovation while promoting economic development across the Mahoning Valley and Northeast Ohio.

Shark Tank invites businesses and entrepreneurs to pitch their ideas to a live audience in order to gain exposure and potential investment. The YBI’s presence in the community starts with promoting economic development to keep our communities thriving. By hosting this event, we continue to cultivate relationships with regional entrepreneurs and community leaders, AND we welcome your attendance!
