This thesis work has examined and analyzed a new operating model in business incubation era, based on utilizing the second generation of web. The main objective of this survey is developing a model of representing many of business incubation services, by enlarging the network relationships between entrepreneurs (including innovative start-up firms), in order to let them share their own experiences, business knowledge, and abilities, in a mass-collaborative networking system.
Business incubation is a dynamic process of enterprise development, which accelerates the successful development of start-up and fledging companies by providing entrepreneurs with an array of targeted resources and services. The basic idea of this survey is applying social aspect of web2.0 regarding to develop a new business model, based on the fact that many of business incubating services can be introduced and developed by the dynamic interactive correlation between different types of start-up firms, in which they can share their own experiences, as the extremely valuable practical guidelines for one another, in an open-source collaborative area. I believe that web2.0 aspect, especially social networking system, and Wiki can be utilized as the effective tools for facilitating and improving the entrepreneurs’ communication, where a start-up firm would be helped by other entrepreneurs during its incubating and growth process.
