Incubator Program

Business incubators nurture the development of entrepreneurial companies, helping them survive and grow during the start-up period, when they are most vulnerable. These programs provide their client companies with business support services and resources tailored to young firms. The most common goals of incubation programs are creating jobs in a community, enhancing a community's entrepreneurial climate, retaining businesses in a community, building or accelerating growth in a local industry, and diversifying local economies.

Business Incubators can reduce start-up costs by 40-50% and reduce the risk of small business failures.
The National Business Incubator Association also reports that incubator clients grow an average of 400% during their stay.  The NBIA also reports that 87% of all firms that have graduated from incubators are still in business and every 50 jobs created by incubators create approximately 25 more jobs in the same community.

Flowers by Robin, LLC
Michele F. 9/20/17
Robin is amazing!  I was having a bad day on a Saturday and my husband was out of town and wanted to send flowers to cheer me up.  He called around to a lot of the chain florist shops and they all said they were done delivering for the day even though they were 5 minutes away.  He happened to come across Flowers by Robin in his search so called her and she happened to be open on a Saturday for Grandparents Day.  She was so kind and willing to help my husband even though it was getting late in the afternoon.  She made up the most amazing arrangement I've ever received and hand delivered it with a big smile that turned my day around.  The flowers were very fresh and have lasted almost 2 weeks.  We will use Robin for all our floral needs from now on!!

Robin helped us fill an order for one of our customers. Wiring out shop-to-shop can always be a bit scary, but Robin really took great care of our customer. She was able to get the order out in about an hour even though we were past standard same day delivery cut off. She was also kind enough to send us a photo without us even asking for it. The arrangement was expertly designed, the kind of arrangement I'd send out of our own shop. We will be using you in the future!

I am the daughter of an amazing floral designer, who worked in Chicago at some pretty incredible venues. So my standards and expectations are beyond high. I've watched Robin's work as a professional grow in design, style, and creativity. It was my extreme pleasure to receive an arrangement from her recently. And by chance, my florist of a mom was in town. We both fell in love with her design and use of color and texture. For fussy girls like us, Robin's arrangement was the highlight of our week. On my counter, sat 3 other flower arrangements and hers just shined. Beyond all that, the prep that went into the flowers was evident by how long they lasted, the brilliance of color they retained, and the lack of dropping leaves/petals. Hey did I mention, Robin is a great lady too and local! Give her a call, you won't be disappointed and you certainly will have the opportunity to impress the next person you are sending flowers to. Thanks Robin!

The short version is I would Highly Recommend Robin!!!!!  She has a rare talent and is super personable. The kind of flower shop and Business person who would be your number one go to for flowers!
I live in Seattle and wanted to find some one in the south end to send flowers to my sister in law who has had 4 deaths in the last 9 months. I was searching on line, looking for some one that had a good sense of style and artistic flair not your usual cookie-cutter bouquet.
After scrolling page by page by pure chance I found  Flowers by Robin.  As soon as I saw the photos of her work I knew she was my gal! Her gift to make beauty using the natural elements of nature, was a rare find and just what I was looking for plus, the added bonus was that she was in my price range. I spoke to Robin, myself on the phone gave her my thoughts of what I was attempting to do and told her from her photos I totally trusted her style and flair. Robin has a gift and it reflects in all her work.  The home she was delivering them to has a very aggressive dog that I pre-warned Robin about. She was kind enough to hand-deliver them herself. I revived a text from my sister in law saying this " Thank you for your thoughtfulness and the beautiful flowers. The colors brighten my day and put a smile on my face. That was so sweet of you! 
OXOXOX "  Bingo! Thank you Robin for your beautiful work together we hit a home run!

Robin came through at the last minute for me, and even threw in an extra item that I requested, the perfect complement to the beautiful flower arrangement she created! My friend was thrilled with the flowers! The hand blown glass vase looks gorgeous, too! Highly recommended!
