Incubators and accelerators
Business incubators usually combine a business development programme with infrastructure, such as co-working spaces and networks, and are designed to nurture start-up businesses through their early development.
Accelerators offer intensive, rapid-growth programmes - usually between three and six months - to get companies prepared for investors, commercialisation and their next phase of growth, within a short timeframe.
An incubator or accelerator can help:
- validate your idea or product
- plan your business model and validate the market
- build personal business skills
- prepare you to pitch to investors
- find the right space or environment to work in
- find funding for investment and commercialisation.
Shared spaces, also known as co-work spaces, offer flexible and affordable workspaces for a variety of businesses, from sole traders and business travellers to small and medium enterprises (SMEs).
From IT to food and beverage, our Tātaki Auckland Unlimited business team has helped a variety of businesses transform their products and services, break into new markets and export to the world.
