The purpose of INOVISA is to help 'produce' successful companies, so as to become autonomous, financially viable and competitive in the long-term.
  8. 8. The incubation process minimizes the risk of failure in the early stages of these companies and maximizes the potential for growth and development of their business. In the medium to long-term, these companies will contribute to the creation of qualified jobs, the revitalization of their sectors of activity and the strength of the local / national economy.

The incubation process includes several stages: Establishment INOVISA offers services and supports the company in the seed stage and early development, including the support in the preparation of a business plan and the search for external funding Consolidation | Maturation Companies should be more independent of the services provided by INOVISA, although office space and networking services can still be very important. The promotion of links with the Institutions of the Scientific and Technologic System, particularly the support in promoting R&D / innovation projects in consortium, are also determinant at this stage Post-Incubation The company is ready to leave INOVISA. Preferably, support will be given to the integration in other environments focused in the support of business development

It is a selective process, not only in terms of the typology of business to be supported (technology-based / qualified service provider; sectors of activity: agro-foods, biotechnology, forestry, environment and energy), but also in terms of the quality of the project (viability and potential of growth). It is, therefore, essential to analyze the potential business projects that will benefit from the services of the incubator, and to select those that are in line with the mission and objectives of INOVISA.
