Startup Incubation

Why early stage incubation?

How we think about technology:

Traditionally presented as an answer to human needs and a metric to define boundaries between what is possible and what is not, technology is nowadays behaving as an independent agent for change, opening new fields to be explored instead of answering questions or solve technical issues.
