  • Should be like this: University Incubators could be successful models because they merge all of the talent of academia, science, and business. All of the areas create a system that mitigates risk and promotes successful ventures
  • 6. Many people say that it is not possible to create a top list of university incubators, because:     1. Many university incubators goals are to "inspire to entrepreneurship"      2. Many icubators focus on creating a diversified business landscape in the area (and it is therefore harder to push out new sectors that has not been in the region before) – example, Rovio, Supercell etc in Helsinki. -> angel money + inspiration -> kickstarting the ecosystem. This with diversification is even better     3. It is so dependent on the ecosystem that it is unfair, especially if you compare something with the US
  •      1. In Sweden, we have extensive experience from UX, mobile and internet competence areas. Everyone can travel to the largest entrepreneurship centers in Europe within a couple of hours at a decent cost. The Nordics are spitting out billion dollar company after each other.      2. It sure is an advantage if your incubator is located at Sand Hill road, but with today's technology, you can remotely invite inspirational speakers via Video chat (such as AVC and spainish incubator) and you can have teams going to silicon valley to establish the right networks (Startup Sauna). You just need to work harder, and that is your job as an incubator manager. Otherwise, you can be an ok incubator, but not a top incubator.     3. Many people blame that they can't do this or that because they do not get enough funding from the university or the government, but we can se examples of incubators that had have the same problem but been entrepreneurial and found revenue streams from selling services or licensing office space to large corporations that can pay for it to subsidize services for the incubates. To be a top incubators, you need to have a entrepreneurial mindset form the top to the ground. And that includes that all stakeholders including the university in itself allows you to be entrepreneurial. So fundamental, but still so many universities that do not let their incubators do what is best for the entrepreneurs. Simple reasons like this, forced us to do this, to keep the debate live and to push the industry forward, and beceme a more entrepreneur-centric industry than it has been in the past. This is our view, our quest and we need everyones input and support to become stronger, more accurate in the aspects that we push and get more data that supports our recommendations. I hope that everyone of you help spread the world and sign up for our panel on our website so that we can help push the incubator industry together and help change the life of millions of people by allowing to create more vibrant startups around the world. Universities has historically been seen as the innovation centre in the society, lets help them catch up and give them the guidance they need to become it once again. Thank you. + Mindset of creating small companies vs. billion dollar companies. University incubators should be a place for people and startups that want to change the world, not only change the region. (we are entrepreneurs that want to change the world, and want to support other entrepreneurs that want to change the world, the ones that want to change the region just come too low on the priority list)

    10. 10. #topincubatorCriticism• Some university incubators’ main goal is only to inspire• It is unfair to compare incubators with different sector focus (biotech vs. IT)• University incubators should take care of the weaker startups that do not manageto fundraise• University incubators creates much more values than the commercial aspects,and those values can not be assessed• It is so dependent on the ecosystemOk, as long as they do not forget tosupport the ‘real’ entrepreneursAgree, we have taken this intoconsideration in our model + we do aspecific sector top listOk, but they still need to create successstories out of these to become a topincubatorAgree, but commercial success storiessupports that those values are there, orare likely to be developedAgree, it is an advantage for startupsborn in larger markets, which wecompensate for, but we believe it is theincubator’s job to try to compensatethat gap
