Business incubators are designed to accelerate a young startup business from an emerging concept to a viable enterprise. They nurture the development of entrepreneurial companies, helping them survive and grow during the startup period when they are most vulnerable.
The incubator process is selective, and businesses accepted into a program may be connected to resources such as laboratory or manufacturing space, access to university and college facilities and personnel, legal and accounting services, or intensive mentoring. All incubators have a defined incubation period, at the end of which the business graduates from the facility and a new sustainable business emerges.
