The business incubator called Starbucks

Thursday night at the Maryland Incubator Company of the Year Awards, keynote speaker and hall of fame inductee Chris Bradenburg from the mobile ad company Millennial Media talked about how he and co-founder Paul Palmieri met at a Starbucks to kick around their business idea.

“Starbucks probably is the most prolific incubator … But if you stay there too long, you burn through your capital,” he said.

On my way to the American Express small business event in Washington, D.C.,  this morning,  I stopped by such an incubator for some inspiration.

More to come from the event.
