  American Public University System plans to open a business incubator in Charles Town.

The incubator will focus on information technology, sustainability and green businesses.

The Journal reports that American Public vice president of community relations John Hough provided details of the project on Monday to the Region 9 Planning and Development Council.

Hough says the incubator's clients will be eight to 10 startups led by veterans. But he says 

veterans might not fill the incubator's capacity so it will be open to other startups.

The incubator will provide mentoring and coaching, networking and education.

The council passed a resolution of support for the incubator.
