A business incubator is an entity that helps startups to scale up by providing services that include management training and office spaces. The National Business Incubation Association (NBIA) defines business incubators as “a catalyst tool for either regional or national economic development”. Incubators vary based on their strategies. Few incubators are located in a physical space with the motto of fostering networking amongst entrepreneurs and their mentors. Few others operate on a virtual basis and mentor and provide services accordingly. Incubators sometimes call themselves accelerators instead, often when they’re geared toward jumpstarting businesses that are more developed.
Hyderabad is known to have lot of scope when it comes to startup, acceleration and incubation. There are numerous big and small incubators available in the city that are ready to offer their help to budding entrepreneurs. Below is a list of few incubators that are running successfully in the city –
