Lina Gozali, Maslin Masrom, Teuku Yuri M. Zagloel, Habibah @ Norehan Haron


Abstract: Universities play an
important role in motivating young graduates to become technology
entrepreneurs. The objectives of this research are to investigate the success
factors for business incubators and to develop and propose a framework of
successful business incubators for public universities in Indonesia. Indonesian
public universities that have business incubators were considered for this
research. A preliminary study was conducted with a panel of experts who have
the necessary insights and experiences in managing both the incubators and the
relationships within the incubators with the tenant firms. This research
examines some significant measures with reference to the unique features of
university business incubators in order to better understand the manner in
which incubators can be assessed in a developing country. The result of this
research includes a framework of successful business incubators in Indonesian
public universities. This framework is developed on the basis of previous
studies and the preliminary study conducted with ten business incubator experts.
