Monitor & Evaluate an Incubator
Incubators fulfill a range of roles, and tracking and publicizing the variety of impacts and successes is an important part of successful incubator management. On one hand, an incubator will often act as a catalyst for the production or introduction of high quality technologies in a community, and it is important to assess just how significant this role is in the wider business world. And on the other hand, the incubator also needs to look at its own internal performance in delivering its goals, and in helping tenant businesses achieve their goals.
This section outlines some approaches to gathering and understanding information that will help the incubator monitor internal and external performance and promote its outcomes.
