While there are over 7000 business incubators worldwide, only 21 are in the Middle East. This book argues that business incubators must be adapted by Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries to support diversifying their economies, the commercialization of new technologies, job creation and wealth building. It describes and compares key indicators of incubation best practices to identify the strengths and weaknesses of business incubation models around the world.
