1 Problem / need / knowledge gap
Incubated companies have different business cycle than normal enterprises do and thus different needs. Before this research result fragmented pieces of tools for general purposes were used that provided non satisfactory or not fully integrated solutions for the hosted companies and the incubators.
2 Alternative applied solutions
The specific digital platform is the only complete and fully integrated tool package for incubators and incubating enterprises, so far. Other digital platforms exist and are used by incubators, but they offer tools for generic purposes mainly, not targeted to their special needs. Also, there is no tool in these platforms that bridges the company with the market.
