Incubators help to create a firm foundation for companies whose main business is the development of new products, technologies or services. This is great for startups who lack the resources and funding necessary to build their business.

According to Wikipedia .com successful completion of a business incubation program increases the likelihood that a start-up company will stay in business for the long term: Historically, 87% of incubator graduates stay in business.

Incubators help with:

Business Networking

Access to Bank Loans, Loan Funds and Guarantee Programs
