  • Use site limiting to limit to only certain domains (URL endings). For example -- notice no space after site:
  • arts incubator policies
  • arts co-working space rental prices

Keep in mind, though, that not all incubators will necessarily use a .org ending, and for-profit companies can now use a .org too (not just nonprofits).

  • Use the filetype: limiter to limit to certain file types -- perhaps filetype:.pdf or filetype:.xls would be helpful for financials or business plans of other arts incubators.
