Throughout the developing world, innovative entrepreneurs are working to establish businesses that are “ICT-enabled”—offering ICT services or utilizing ICTs as a fundamental aspect of their business model. Business incubators focus on helping entrepreneurs to build competitive businesses through the early, high-risk stages of development. The infoDev Incubator Initiative supports business incubators as well as business incubator networks in developing countries with financial and technical assistance.
There are three categories: start-ups in IDA countries (which includes India), international working groups targeting women, youth, and high growth ICT enterprise development, and regional networks on business incubation. Proposals are due April 15, 2008.
