Business incubators are programs designed to accelerate young start-up businesses from an emerging concept to a viable enterprise. They nurture the development of entrepreneurial companies, helping them survive and grow during the start-up period, when they are most vulnerable. Typically, business incubators provide shared office services; office, lab or manufacturing space; access to university and college facilities and personnel; preferred access to banks and other funding groups; legal and accounting services; and mentoring.
