WELCOME to the Emerging Enterprise Center.
The Emerging Enterprise Center (business incubator), offers assistance to early stage businesses in New Castle County and the greater Wilmington region. New Castle County combines a history of business success with an entrepreneurial heritage. It was New Castle County that supported the rise of corporate giants DuPont, Astra Zeneca, and Christiana Care.
New Castle County has a proud legacy of being business friendly and it was the county’s leading role in the early mills and shipping that would eventually lead to Delaware becoming the “Corporate Capital of the World.”
The Emerging Enterprise Center is Delaware’s only small business incubator.

How EEC works
The EEC connects businesses with a comprehensive network of partners such as business mentors, investors, bankers, attorneys, accountants, and other business professionals. EEC provides affordable office space equipped with the infrastructure to launch companies from a concept or home office to company headquarters centrally located in New Castle County.
The EEC provides mentoring, educational opportunities, networking events, shared office equipment, receptionist services, and other amenities that are vital to the success of new business. New Castle County offers an intelligent, ambitious workforce, strategic location, proximity and access to university resources, and a host of economic assistance, while the EEC provides the tools necessary to fulfill entrepreneurial dreams.
The current recession, and the upswing expected in the near future, means an economic climate perfectly suited for start-up businesses. It was at the height of past downturns that some of the greatest American businesses were formed.
Do you have the next big idea for a company? The Emerging Enterprise Center can help. Contact the EEC to discuss the opportunities available to small businesses in the region.
