What is the function of business incubators?

Entrepreneurship is the pillar of the economic and social development of each country. The creation of companies brings more benefits than problems, so the existence of mechanisms that help young entrepreneurs to build their new businesses is important.

Within the development of a business there may be several destinations: The company may prosper at the beginning and fail to stay in the market or it may be a great idea that fails for lack of advice or financial knowledge to sustain.

To avoid these cases, business incubators were created, which are defined as support centers for entrepreneurs that allow and facilitate the creation of new organizations that require support during their creation and maturity stage as a business.

It is very important that the success of your business model be lasting in time for a company to have a positive impact on your community. That’s why solid bases are needed.
