@Spikesaurus That’s also possible. I wonder what was on the drives? If you included something embarrassing you’d reduce reporting.

It also strikes me that incubators seem to be about choosing targets for short-term VC, which is not the same as best for the nation.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

Maybe this is the best way. Or maybe not. But for mine it looks like we’re just assuming it is ‘cos incubator people talk a lot.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

Is there any evidence, not produced by incubators, showing that incubators’ startups are more successful or more innovative? Any at all?
