Following work of Schumpeter, entrepreneurship and innovation are often considered as synonyms. Start-ups are characterized by high degree of organizational innovativeness, which should have a positive relationship with innovation process output, and consequently contribute to company success. On the other hand, small enterprises are struggling from numerous limitations, which make the development of market-successful innovation increasingly important, but also a difficult task. In many aspects, company's own resources and capabilities might be not enough to accomplishment this task. The main objective of business incubators (BI) is to support the development of new entrepreneurial firms. The quality and variety of services offered by incubators play important role in the overall incubation process effectiveness.
