• Business incubators differ from research and technology parks in their dedication to startup and early-stage companies. Research and technology parks, on the other hand, tend to be large-scale projects that house everything from corporate, government or university labs to small companies. Most research and technology parks do not offer business assistance services, which are the hallmark of a business incubation program.
