Technological Incubators

Technological incubators are support corporations that offer an opportunity to develop innovative technological ideas and set up new businesses in order to commercialize them. Incubator programs are being implemented throughout the country, supported by the Chief Scientist Office of the Ministry of Trade and Industry. Through incubators, entrepreneurs with innovative technological ideas are given the opportunity to lunch their initiative in every sense of the word. In Israel incubators have special status, given that they are operating with the support of the government, which funds 85% of the total of 700 thousand dollars allocated to each company that has been accepted to the incubator.

Technological Incubator programs are relevant for entrepreneurs with innovative technological ideas that are at the first stages of business development and have difficulty in raising private capital. The development idea proposed to the incubators should be highly innovative, have a high business potential and possess a competitive advantage over potential competitors in the market. In addition, the entrepreneur should have the capability to protect the intellectual property of the project and have at his or hers disposal a leading team for developing the idea as part of the incubator program.

The incubators support the projects for a period of around two year and with a total budget of about NIS 2-3.5 million, depending on the scope of the project. 15% of the total budget is backed by the incubators and 85% by the government in a form of a grant; that will be paid back only if the enterprise succeeds .The startup will pay to the government royalties of 3% to 5% from the revenues that will be generated each month, up to the full amount of the award plus interes.

1. Significant financial support – A budget of NIS 2-3.5 million (depending on the type of the venture and on the location of the incubator) for a period of two years.

2. Control of the company – The founders will maintain 50%-70% of the shares from that company that will be established through the incubator; without any financial investment from their part.

3. Infrastructure and professional support – Incubator provides all the necessary infrastructure for the development of the product, including technical support and business mentoring, administrative services and legal and marketing consulting.

4. Partnerships – The incubators offers synergies with other companies operating under it.

5.Down the road – Incubators help locate potential customers and investors and help in raising funds.
