What is a Startup Incubator?

Startup incubators are organizations that support entrepreneurs in developing their business ideas by providing orientation, training, and infrastructure. They help define business models, secure financing, offer courses and legal advice, and provide workspaces. Aiming to establish new companies and promote innovation, incubators reduce the initial costs and risks for startups. They can be private, university-affiliated, or governmental and may be general, accepting proposals from any sector, or specialized, focusing on specific industries like social, sports, or technology.

At Incubateur Télécom Paris, we offer these services and more, tailored to the specific needs of digital tech and deeptech startups.
