What is a Business incubator?

A business incubator – also known as a start-up incubator – offers you the support you need to turn your business idea into a reality.

Business incubators give you access to excellent facilities, leading business expertise and opportunities to network and build new contacts.

They can provide you with your own workstation, digital connectivity, expert guidance, business mentoring, a company address and some start-up incubators even give you access to business workshops, additional training and introduce you to small business funding opportunities.
