Michael Parker's Professional Experience

2010 - Present

Anderson Business Incubator (ABI) - ABI Manager

The Anderson Business Incubator (ABI) is an affiliate of the Flagship Enterprise Center and is part of the partnership established between Anderson University and the City of Anderson. The ABI is for small businesses that are less technology focused and would benefit from the central downtown location.

I helped our six clients with business matters ranging from financial planning, setting up accounting systems, assisting in the creation of marketing materials.

I also assisted the incubator in the creation of its website and its rebranding, as well as developing program content and moving its clients toward 'graduation'.
