Maxum Business Incubator

The Maxum Business Incubator develops the business leaders of tomorrow by providing an enabling environment where start-ups from the knowledge intensive sectors are fast tracked to compete in the global village. Incubation creates a synergistic environment where entrepreneurs can share learning; create working partnerships; as well as open doors to markets and resources.

The pre-incubation programme (renamed Maxum Innovation Factory) is between six to nine months duration and the main incubation programme (Maxum Core) lasts up to three years.  In pre-incubation, entrepreneurs are assisted to refine their business cases and finalise their prototypes, whereas in main incubation the focus is on commercialisation, growth in revenues and sustainability.

Focus Areas

There are four categories in which entrepreneurs fall under; Mobile, Smart Industries, Bio Economy, and Green Economy.



Within incubation, entrepreneurs are categorized as pre-commercial; companies who are still in the initial development stage of their business or commercial; companies that have secured an investment or made a sale from a willing customer.

Value Added Services

Value Added Services available for companies enrolled in Maxum Business Incubator, Climate Innovation Centre and BioPark Incubator.
