High quality leadership is a key factor determining the probability of success for an incubator, including its role in developing and informing its broader ecosystem for innovation and entrepreneurship. infoDev seeks to increase the capacity of business incubation managers – and their stakeholders – through one-on-one technical assistance, peer-to-peer networks, and networking and knowledge-sharing platforms. infoDev’s Business Incubation Management Training Program is the first-of-its-kind, drawing from the lessons, models, and examples in business incubation from across the world. It is designed for business incubation managers and other business incubation stakeholders wishing to increase their understanding and know-how of the business incubation process and is relevant particularly in the context of emerging and frontier markets.
infoDev’s Business Incubation Management Training Program is delivered by trainers who have been certified by infoDev. Currently, infoDev has more than 60 certified trainers around the world, who have a wealth of practical experience in business incubation management and have been trained and certified by to deliver training on infoDev’s behalf. Training delivery is backed by a rigorous quality management process managed by infoDev.
The development of infoDev’s Business Incubation Management Training Program has been made possible by contributions from the International Finance Corporation, the Government of Finland, SPARK (The Netherlands) and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
