The Incubator is designed to assist eligible tenants whose business plans demonstrate both an aptitude to develop their own successful practice and a commitment to include in their plans a significant contribution of pro bono or affordable legal services to members of the surrounding Troost community. If you would like additional information, please contact the Solo and Small Firm Incubator at 816-235-1603. You can apply by submitting the following documents:

  • Application
  • Business plan showing intended area(s) of practice*
  • Marketing plan
  • Budget and financial projections for the time period to be covered by Incubator occupancy and two years thereafter
  • Statement as to the extent to which the applicant plans to apportion some professional time to pro bono or discounted legal serves to the clients of limited financial means particularly to residents of the Troost Avenue corridor.

*The attached documents are examples of the type of information frequently included in a business plan. To be accepted into the Incubator, a successful business plan does not need to contain these specific elements. Every business plan is different and reviewing a number of business plan examples will help a business owner to determine which elements are essential to creating a solid business plan and a successful business.
