The main aim is to shape next generation entrepreneurs.  The incubator will provide a defined set of services to individuals or small companies. This may include flexible lease terms, specific office space, access to technology, technical assistance and financing. The technical assistance might include marketing, legal, finance, HR, and other business development services.
