What is a tech incubator? A incubator is a company that helps new and startup companies to develop by providing services such as management training, know-how, infrastructure or office space.

An incubators differ from research and technology parks in their dedication to startup and early-stage companies. Research and technology parks, on the other hand, tend to be large-scale projects that house everything from corporate, government or university labs to very small companies. Most research and technology parks do not offer business assistance services, which are the hallmark of a business incubation program. However, many research and technology parks house incubation programs.
