# Incubation as service

Be part of an ecosystem


Innovation is done best in close collaboration with all players in the ecosystem. Through the years we have build an extensive network in the startup and tech community. To start fast or to improve your innovation efforts, we have created an incubation-as-a-service. We create programs for a period of 3 to 6 months.

Being part of entrepreneurial ecosystems will put you in front of the competition. To stay competitive in a rapidly evolving industry requires intensive cross-border collaboration among incubation programs, corporations, and innovation agencies. Startup Spirit can you offer real connections as we are embedded in the ecosystem from the early days on.

Our programs are designed to catalyze impactful collaborations. Participants will not only be part of an incubation program, but engage in networking events and matchmaking activities designed to find commonalities in their ecosystems. They will discuss and analyze corporate-incubation program partnership best-practices, sponsorship opportunities, future trends, challenges and opportunities, and make lasting connections with like-mined organizations.

We have created an online learning platform to support your team 24/7 and help them reach their learning goals. Here you can find curated content and suggested items.
