The innovation scene is changing at a rapid pace and so are the strategies of incubator, accelerators with the maturing of the ecosystem and rapid pace of technological evolution.
Here are some ideas of business models associated to incubators and accelerators (both are very different entities) that came while discussing with a friend who was exploring setting up an incubator for startups in the social space.
- Training/ Coaching
- Commission on fund raising
- % Equity
- Startup/ Corporate Consulting / matchmaking
- Community / membership
- Become an influencer media
- Startup factory
- Fablab / makerspaces to rent capacity use
- Events/ hackathons
Happy to have more ideas and update the list!
