The ABC of Business Incubation

Incubator

This word when used alone is very different to its use in relation to business incubators. Especially in some areas of the USA (did you ever hear of Kentucky Fried Chicken?) as well as in Australia or Europe an incubator is a place to breed chickens. In these regions it still is difficult to explain the meaning of a "business incubator". Another meaning for the medical sector is an incubator as a device to protect and nurture premature babies. In our business we do not grow chicken nor do we nurture babies. An incubator provides a favorable and supportive environment for start-up enterprises as well as small innovative firms with growth potential. (see business incubator).
