Abstract

Business incubators are an important mechanism to accelerate the success of new ventures. The emergence of ubiquitous IT allows to provide several support services for start-ups via online platforms. One particularly promising approach is the concept of crowd-based incubation. To shed light on this novel topic we conducted a single case study at the crowd-based incubator JumpStartFund. The results provide several interesting insights and a preliminary conceptual model of crowd-based incubation that contributes on research of business incubators in general and provides valuable hints for practical applications that might extend the service offering of existing business incubators.
