Saturday, June 12, 2021, 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM UTC

Incubators have been found as helping to create culture of entrepreneurship. They act as a promoter for the development of cohesive business, and support networks which include universities, finance providers, business schools, business organizations, large companies and government bodies.

About this event

Business incubators create value by combining the entrepreneurial spirit of start-ups with the resources that are typically available to new businesses. It is widely recognized that knowledge-based entrepreneurial companies are the main creators of economic growth, and such enterprises require special business development services. Therefore, this session aims to discuss the role of business incubators in providing greater services (networking services, capital support, and training programs) in entrepreneurship development. Secondly, it also examines the mediating and moderating role of business start-up and government regulations for entrepreneurship. Using a quantitative methodology, we find that the business incubators are playing an effective mediating role in providing networking services, capital support, and training programs to individuals and entrepreneurs, which are significant for entrepreneurship development, whereas business start-up positively mediates the relationship between networking services, capital support, training programs, and entrepreneurship development. Government regulations for entrepreneurship have a direct effect on entrepreneurship development. More importantly, government regulations for entrepreneurship have a positive moderating effect between business start-up and entrepreneurship development. Our session is focused on identifying the critical resources needed to improve the quality of business incubators and to ensure the availability of such resources to improve entrepreneurship development.
