Definition of Incubator

An Incubator is an entity that nurtures business concepts to the point where they either become self-sufficient or are attractive to venture capital investors.
(Definition continues below)

Services offered by business incubators vary considerably. Most offer physical space, but they may also offer entrepreneurial advice, legal services, shared meeting space, administrative support, accounting services, marketing support and many other services.

The goal of an incubator is to encourage entrepreneurship and minimize the obstacles that entrepreneurs might encounter if they did everything on their own. One nice thing about starting a business in an incubator is that you are usually surrounded by many other talented entrepreneurs, which can be both inspiring and also very educational.
