Incubators introduction…

Entrepreneurs usually have few resources, knowledge and very limited time. They need to focus on the core of your business and be integrated into a startup environment conducive to the growth turns out to be decisive in the success of the company. This is where the incubators play an important role.

The concept was born in 1956 in Batavia, in the United States, when, after the failure of a large industrial park, the owner decided to rent space to several small businesses. Since then, the incubators were reproduced and there is at this time in 7000 worldwide. How babies are born, startups are also vulnerable in the early days, so grow up in a protected environment is a huge advantage. Statistics prove that the survival rate of an incubated company is 3 times higher than non incubated and companies in incubation grow faster than under normal conditions.

Business incubators accompany the development of business in the period in which they are under development and help us to grow providing counseling and mentoring services, a physical space where they can develop a network of contacts and a decisive entrepreneurial ecosystem in delivering business idea.

First Entry Log – Newbie to Entrepreneurship

A new journey: the navigation discoveries of our ancestors from the XV Century and what that influences in today’s entrepreneurs!


What is entrepreneurship or what defines a entrepeneur?

– ” pessoa empreendedora é uma pessoa criativa, marcada pela capacidade de estabelecer e atingir objetivos e que mantém um alto nível de consciência do ambiente em que vive usando-a para detectar oportunidades de negócios. Um empreendedor que continua a aprender a respeito de possíveis oportunidades de negócios e a tomar decisões moderadamente arriscadas que objetivam a inovação, continuará a desempenhar um papel de empreendedor.”

enterprising person is a creative person, marked by the ability to set and achieve goals and maintain a high level of environmental awareness in living using it to detect business opportunities. An entrepreneur who continues to learn about possible business opportunities and to make moderately risky decisions aimed at innovation, will continue to play an entrepreneurial role.

What it means and what it represents?

 – “empreendedor – entre-preneur – tem origem francesa e no decorrer da história foi utilizado com diversos significados. O primeiro registro de adoção do termo deu-se no século XII, para se referir “àquele que incentivava brigas”, a partir do século XVIII, o termo entre-preneur significa aquele que assume riscos e começa algo novo.

O termo empreendedor foi construído ao longo do tempo sob duas abordagens teóricas: a econômica e a comportamental. No âmbito da Teoria Econômica, o primeiro economista a tratar do tema do empreendedorismo como um todo foi Richard Cantillon, que utilizava o termo para caracterizar as pessoas que aproveitavam oportunidades com a perspectiva de obterem lucros, assumindo os riscos inerentes. E depois muitos outros economistas baseavam seus estudos através deste termo, mas foi através de David C. McClelland a grande contribuição das ciências do comportamento para o empreendedorismo, ao mostrar que o ser humano é um produto social e tende a reproduzir os seus próprios modelos.”

 – Entrepreneur – has French origin and the course of history was used with different meanings. The first term adoption registration took place in the XII century to refer to “that which encouraged fights”, from the XVIII century, the term in-preneur means one who takes risks and start something new.

The term entrepreneur was built over time under two theoretical approaches: the economic and behavioral. Under the Economic Theory, the first economist to deal with entrepreneurship theme as a whole was Richard Cantillon, who used the term to describe people who took advantage of opportunities with the prospect of making profits, own risk. And then many other economists based their studies through this term, but was by David C. McClelland the great contribution of the behavioral sciences to entrepreneurship, to show that the human being is a social product and tends to play your own templates.
