Incubation service is provided to newly established small enterprises that are yet to start business or are in the development phase up to a maximum of three years of age. The placement of CTT's incubator within the Faculty space is necessary for the maintenance of the CTT's research atmosphere. It is an ideal environment for the development of academic entrepreneurshipStart-up and spin-off companies created in cooperation between FSB and the economy receive assistance in space and infrastructure in the incubator of CTT. CTT provides them with professional and organisational support in their development and activities such as assistance in networking, identification of funding sources for development-innovation projects, advisory and administrative services, and in particular education.
Special emphasis of business support to incubated companies is on supporting the development of entrepreneurial competencies. Although the Council of Europe has defined entrepreneurship as one of eight key competences, learning about entrepreneurship and acquiring skills has not yet been implemented in the educational system of the Republic of Croatia. Therefore, CTT, through the incubator, is committed to learning about entrepreneurship. Since innovation is inseparable from entrepreneurship, we consider entrepreneurial competence crucial for designing and realising innovations.
