Entrepreneurship in India is on the verge of explosive growth. Angel investors, venture capital, media, startup clubs, service providers, mentors and training companies are going to grow. And one important cog in the wheel is the incubator - the place where startups are born. When a baby is born, he/she is kept in the incubator for first few hours and maybe days - this gives them a chance to adjust to outside environment, and grow stronger before they face the outside world ! In a similar way, a startup is incubated in Incubation Center, which gives them a chance to bring their business in shape, before they reach out to the world.
