Privately owned. Each Shareholder owns between 3 and 5% of shares. They are for profit organizations. As in the privately held company, revenue stream is based on success fees and capital gain on start-up equity. Thanks to the vast shareholder base it’s possible to provide a wider network of expertise. “Public” Unlisted Company c a b c Privately owned with a limited shareholder base or a single shareholder, often a successful entrepreneur or business angel. They are for profit organizations. Their revenue stream is based on success fees from liquidity events and capital gain on equity shares of successfully incubated companies. Success of the model is strongly correlated with majority shareholder achievements.
