HCC to hold open house for new David W. Fletcher Incubator + Labs

(October 25, 2021) - Officials at Hagerstown Community College will hold a public grand opening for the David W. Fletcher Incubator + Labs on Thursday, November 4, from 4 to 6 p.m. 

The Fletcher Incubator is located on the HCC campus and housed inside the former Technical Innovation Center, which underwent an $11 million renovation, and is now the Center for Business and Entrepreneurial Studies. New tenants already have committed to nearly half of the space available for tenant occupancy. 

“The mission is to grow economic development in Washington County, by recruiting those in and outside of the county, to start or grow their businesses in the Fletcher Incubator,” said HCC President Jim Klauber. “We work with these start-ups from day one, to prepare them for graduation and to spin them off to our economic development friends in the city and the county, where they can sustain and grow.”  

The Fletcher Incubator has community support from partners such as the Washington County Chamber of Commerce, TEDCO, Washington County Community and Economic Development, the Alice Virginia and David W. Fletcher Foundation, and SCORE. 

Guided tours and refreshments will be provided at the event, which is free and open to the public. Learn more at or by contacting Justina Shaw at 240-500-2479.
