Business Incubators and Opportunies | Benton

Completed in 2004, the Benton Business Incubator Building is the only business incubator building in Lafayette County. This project is a coordinated effort between the Benton Community Development Corporation and the Village of Benton. The 12,800-square-foot facility consists of four office spaces and three manufacturing/retail/industrial spaces. This facility was built to nurture start-up companies and entrepreneurs during their first few critical years of business. The business incubator offers small- and medium-sized start-up businesses office, warehouse, commercial, and manufacturing space at low, affordable monthly rates. Additionally, the incubator provides a variety of business-assistance services and resources that are beneficial to successful growth.

The Benton Business Incubator is located at 244 Ridge Avenue, right in the heart of the Village’s new Business Park. Lots in the business park range in size from one acre to 14 acres, and are available to businesses at prices as low as $1.00/acre. More information about the Benton Business Incubator is available by calling the Village of Benton office at (608) 759-3721 or by email: bentonincubator@hotmail.com.

The Village of Benton has a 33-acre industrial park located just south of State Highway 11 on the western edge of the Village. The park contains lots of varying sizes, and utilities have already been provided to the site as part of a Federal Economic Development Administration grant. The industrial park is home to a 12,800-square-foot incubator building, offering small- and medium-sized start-up businesses office, warehouse, commercial, and manufacturing space at low, affordable monthly rates.

The Village of Benton is a short distance from major highways allowing for easy access to Platteville; Dodgeville; Madison; Monroe; Janesville; Galena, Illinois; and Dubuque, Iowa, as well as other communities throughout the tri-state region.

More information about the industrial park is available by calling the Village office at (608) 759-3721 or by email: vofb1@hotmail.com. Information about the incubator building is available by contacting Steve Malone, of the Benton State Bank, (608) 759-3600 or by email: stevem@bentonbank.com.
