Siskiyou Harvest & Business Incubator
The Siskiyou County Economic Development Council's business incubator is dedicated to encouraging accelerated growth for start-up and expanding businesses. Currently, there is room available for rent at the EDC facility for developing or expanding businesses for three to five years. The business incubator is located in Yreka, however, to better serve new and expanding businesses the benefits of the incubator are available in several communities through the Incubator Without Walls concept.
Additionally, incubator businesses are eligible for educational programs designed to accelerate business growth by streamlining the hiring process. This feature of the program improves the county's economic foundation by creating a market for good employees and shortening the start-up period for new businesses. All incubator businesses have access to a fax and copy machine, as well as other necessary office equipment at the EDC and in some other communities. Consultants, classes, seminars, and workshops, offered at low or no cost, are also available for incubator businesses.
