    Formed in 1977, Genesis Business Centers is a diversified high tech, for-profit incubator program that assists emerging high-tech companies through consulting services as well as by bartering furnished office and production space, business assistance and showcasing opportunities in exchange for stock. Genesis has established a subsidiary called Genesis Portfolio Partners, that functions as a portfolio holding company. Investors may participate in a diversified portfolio of the Genesis incubator companies by investing in this entity. Another Genesis program, the Genesis Transplant program, matches entrepreneurs from the Twin Cities with select communities that are located outside the seven county metro area. The program addresses the imbalance between the capital that exists out-state and the metro-area companies that need that capital for the funding of start-ups or the expansion of small, emerging high tech companies.
