The list has been extended to other categories that are not specifically coworking spaces or incubators but refer to the same possibility to find a space for growth.
Are you a business in search of office space?
Coworking spaces, incubators or accelerators? The difference between the terms is often unclear, even in the business environment, the words tend to be overlapped.
Let’s make this clear once and for all!
A startup incubator is a program for early-stage companies or solopreneurs at the very initial stage of their growth. The companies selected for taking part in incubator programmes are offered resources that support their activities, money, management, and space-wise.
Business incubators do not require members to achieve their results within a short time frame, and rarely ask for equity of the companies partaking in the program. They instead charge a membership fee.
As already mentioned, incubators provide growing companies with a wide range of resources, starting from internet access, to office space and mentoring in different fields, such as marketing, fundraising skills, presentation skills, business management and accountancy, networking possibilities, legal assistance and the possibility of getting capital invested.
The first incubator was born in the United States, in 1959, when the Mancuso family decided to buy and transform a former manufacturing plant in a shared space for different smaller companies, providing them with short-term leases, assistance in accounting, business advice, fundraising, equipment and secretarial services.
According to the InBIA (International Business Innovation Association), in 2010, there was already a presence of 7,000 incubators worldwide, there to boost the growth of entire countries and support small businesses to become steady companies.
For many years, the World Bank Group, UNIDO (United Nations Industrial Development Organization) and the European Commission have been promoting business incubator initiatives in developing countries, to underline the increasing and relevant impact of this business model on the growth of an area.
Incubators differ from accelerators, even though the words are often interchangeable.
TechRepublic explains the terms with an easy-to-grab and, above all, easy-to-remember example:
Whereas a startup accelerator is a program that has a fast-paced structure and fixed-term conditions.
According to Forbes, accelerators are, in fact, more programmatic and require startups to reach their planned goals within the program in three or four months.
Startups that are part of accelerators focus on developing strategies and operations, more than on product development, after a highly competitive selection for accessing the program.
While other major differences of an accelerator include seed investment and part of the equity to be shared with the private fund that invests in the accelerator program.
Although considered to be a big part of the incubator experience as well, coworking spaces are a different business model and relate to shared office options for small/growing companies.
Companies often choose shared office spaces because of their convenience. Therefore, cost savings can be listed among the perks of a coworking space, but this is not the only one. Networking possibilities and access to events are the others.
What many don’t know is that the coworking concept was thought up by Brad Neuberg, a Senior Software Engineer. Back in 2005, he decided to send a message through his blog for whoever was interested in joining a community of independent people, tired of working alone at home and missing that sense of community that makes a place a workplace.
Deskmag has predicted, thanks to the data of the 2018 Global Coworking Survey, that in 2018 1.7 million people will be working in about 19.000 coworking spaces all over the world. And innovation hubs are definitely the most attractive places for businesses that want to start a coworking space activity.

The evolution of coworking spaces and incubators has reached an unimaginable level of success compared to when these activities first started.
These evolved into other different and more specific businesses, ready to cover the needs of entrepreneurial souls, but not enough resources to put their ideas into practice.
For this reason, the venues featured on Valuer.ai’s list, cover search engines for office spaces, network platforms and online marketplaces for businesses, showing how broad the range of possibility is.
The success of these revolves around a few points, that can be summarized as follows:
- The increased traveling options - workers are traveling for business more than before, and have the consequent need to find a temporary workplace wherever they are.
- Higher costs of rent for office space - above all, innovation hubs all over the world push new entrepreneurs to find affordable alternatives.
- The growing attention towards the concept of corporate innovation and the emerging cooperation possibilities with the universe of startups - they are now more than ever in need of support for fast and sustainable growth.
Benefits also include:
- Access to resources (from desks to meeting rooms, from coffee and tea, to copy rooms and labs, etc.).
- Networking possibilities (events, workshops, mentorship programs, etc.).
- Flexibility (cheaper rental options, shared working spaces with “flex desks”, short-term and temporary leases).
