An incubator is a program designed to help start-ups or companies still in the process of being spun out succeed. In addition to seed capital, typical incubator offerings for entrepreneurs include workspace and expertise. For example, some incubators offer training or coworking spaces.

Incubators can be operated by the public or private sector. Sometimes they are also associated with universities.

Although incubators are often associated with startups in the tech sector, the principle of helping new companies get off the ground is not limited to this area.
