Incubators in multinational corporations : development of a corporate incubator operator model

  • This paper analyzes the components of a corporate incubator operator model in multinational companies. Thereby, three relevant phases were identified: pre incubation, incubation, and exit. Each phase contains different criteria that represent critical success factors for a corporate incubator, which are based on theoretical findings and lessons learned from practice. During the pre-incubation phase companies should define their need for a corporate incubator, the origin of ideas and the selection criteria for incubator tenants. The actual phase of incubation refers to the incubator program, which should be flexible with respect to each tenant. Furthermore, resource allocation plays an important role during the incubator program. Exit options after a successful incubation differ according to internal ideas and external start-ups, as well as the objective of the incubator. The research is based on a comprehensive screening of existing incubator literature and a qualitative content analysis of statements from eight experts of international corporate incubators.
