KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- Kalamazoo’s first of its kind bio-medical incubator will be offering a virtual tour of the facility today.

The Innovation Center at the BTR Park has helped launch a number of new companies that have moved on to their own addresses.

Dr. Robert Dewitt says this is their way of drumming up new business, finding scientists who may have great ideas, but no practical way of developing them on their own.

He says they can not only provide the lab space, but lab equipment and testing gear that no start-up firm could possibly afford on their own. They can also provide the business and legal advice necessary to start a new firm, and in some cases, even help with the financials.

The virtual tour will be available between 2:50 and 5:50 this afternoon.
