What is Technology Business Incubation?
Technology Business Incubation (TBI) is one of the strategies identified by Department of Science and Technology (DOST) to promote innovation and technopreneurship for the country’s socio-economic development in a knowledge-based world economy.
TBI involves an ecosystem where innovation is promoted and supported towards commercialization. It aims to help startup technology-based businesses by providing a range of resources, services and facilities needed during the development stage. The goal of TBI is to produce firms that will leave the incubation program financially viable and able to sustain operation and compete in the market.
