LONDON, Ky. (AP) - A new business incubator in southeastern Kentucky is opening for tours on Tuesday after a ribbon cutting being attended by state and federal officials.
The Business Innovation and Growth Center in London includes 9,600 square feet of product development, office and laboratory space. It's expected to help create 127 jobs and generate $6 million in private investment in its first five years.
U.S. Rep. Harold "Hal" Rogers and Appalachian Regional Commission Chairman Earl Gohl are among the officials expected for the 2:30 p.m. EDT event.
Some businesses are already using the space, which officials say is the first business incubator in the state built to top environmental standards.
