Services Cooperative Association (SCA) is a not-for-profit cooperative association of independent businesses created from a research project on small business development by the Houston Chamber of Commerce in the late 70's to early 80's. To date SCA has worked with more than 45,000 companies, founded The Entrepreneurial Development Center, Houston's first business incubator (which became Texas' oldest), founded the first Womens Business Incubator in the United States and the first Virtual Business Center incubator in the world. SCA's incubator clients have won virtually every award for business growth in Houston, some nationally and some even internationally. SCA is totally self-sufficient and operates entirely without grants, gifts, donations, contributions or public funding and is an advocate that government funding not be used to compete with private sector in economic development activities.
