Incubaators and Accelerators: An Overview

Overview

As India matures to become a start-up hub, Incubators/Accelerators (I/As) play an important role in this growth by providing mentorship, nurturing ideas, providing technical support, generating funds and thus, helping acquire new customers. The number of incubators and accelerators have grown by 40%, with more than 40 new ones added in 2016. Out of these, 30+ are academic incubators established under the ‘Start-up India Stand-up India’ initiative. The incubators and accelerators are currently technology-driven, and seem to be industry agnostic. I/As can be broadly classified into four categories: Corporate, Independent, Academic, and Government-supported. Corporate and Independent mostly work on accelerator model, whereas Academic and Government-supported have an incubator-like model.

The first edition of NASSCOM-Zinnov report titled “Incubators/Accelerators (I/As) Driving the Growth of Indian Start-up Ecosystem – 2017” throws light on the critical role that I/As play in the start-up landscape. It classifies the various types, provides a compilation of facts, trends, best practices, challenges and opportunities.
