Affect policies & regulations
This page is currently under construction.
An incubator often acts as a credible, neutral and trustworthy connection between the world of business and the world of government. This is especially true when an incubator has strong government backing and participation in governance. This role enables an incubator to influence government policies to improve the environment for business.
An incubator is in direct contact with many growing businesses each day, and is in a good position to understand not just specific issues but also the systemic regulatory constraints on small business growth. Communicating these to government can help bring change. An incubator can also influence ICT policies and programs by showcasing how effective these technologies can be in underpinning business growth.
This section outlines strategies that incubators can follow to take their experiences in supporting business growth and use them to influence policies and regulations.
