Business Incubator Network


In order to boost entrepreneurship amongst students and encourage the creation and development of new businesses, in 2001 we developed a Business Incubator Network.

Not only has this model allowed to transform into real companies the ideas developed in the entrepreneurship courses, but also the ideas of our alumni and the community. Accordingly, we built a network of business incubators in Tecnológico de Monterrey and became a pioneer in Latin America, founding the first of these incubators in Monterrey Campus in October 2001.

As mentioned in its 2015 Mission, this network of business incubators has strengthened Tecnológico de Monterrey’s commitment to support the development of the country by creating, developing, and transferring models and networks of incubators in order to contribute to the creation of businesses.

What is a Network of Incubators?

Tecnológico de Monterrey’s Business Incubator Network is a comprehensive platform supporting the creation and development of start-ups, providing the tools and support required by the entrepreneurs in order to have more and better opportunities to start and create their own business. Its main objectives are:

* Providing students, alumni, and the entrepreneurial community with a model for developing start-ups.

* Training competitive entrepreneurs and companies in the national and international arena, so that they contribute to the social development of their communities.

* Encouraging the contribution of Tecnológico de Monterrey’s campuses to the development of the region where they operate.

Within the Business Incubator Network, we provide for projects that require different demands for support due to both the nature of their respective business models, and the level of technology involved. Hence, we have three Sub-Networks of Business Incubators, the first of their kind in Latin America:


Impulsar la tranformación de ideas y proyectos innovadores en empresas de alto valor agregado que generan nuevo conocimiento en sectores avanzados como lo son: agrobiotecnología, biotecnología, desarrollo de tecnología de información, farmacéutica, ingeniería biométrica, energía, aeroespacial y automotriz, entre otros.


Apoya la creación, desarrollo y consolidación de empresas cuyo modelo de negocio, involucra procesos que incorporan elementos de innovación.

Atiende empresas en: consultoría, telecomunicaciones, desarrollo de franquicias, servicios de software, construcción, agronegocios y comercio entre otros.


Impulsa la cración y el fortalecimiento de micronegocios a través de la capacitación y asesoría a los emprendedores, para que puedan llevar a cabo proyectos productivos, que al mismo tiempo sean generadores de fuentes de trabajo e impulsen el crecimiento de sus comunidades. Adicionalmente se ofrecen programas educativos que desarrollan y complementan las capacidades empresariales de las persona.

Intermediate technology and high technology networks have served over 3,000 projects in the last two years. These businesses have created over 6,000 direct employment opportunities (2010-2011).

Similarly, the Network of Social Incubators has advised over 3,500 microbusinesses during the last five years, assisted by the active participation of 13,195 student advisors from Tecnológico de Monterrey.

Model of Business Incubators

The Model of Business Incubators developed by Tecnológico de Monterrey consists of three stages: creation (pre-incubation), development (incubation), and business consolidation (post-incubation). We support entrepreneurs all through the three stages.

1 Pre-Incubation

Identifying business opportunities, developing a business model, and creating the company.

2 Incubation

Facilitating and overseeing companies all the way through implementation, operation, and development

3 Post-Incubation

Delivering support and monitoring companies in order to promote their growth and market consolidation

The Business Incubator Network has over 700 specialists who provide coaching and advice all through this process.

Incubation Services

Through the Model of Business Incubators, our Business Incubator Network offers direct assistance to entrepreneurs and businessmen during the three stages of the model. There is also an array of services to help them achieve and consolidate their business idea. Entrepreneurs and businessmen receive comprehensive support through:

  • Customized coaching
  • Specialized advice in areas such as:
    • Management
    • Marketing and sales
    • Accounting and finances
    • Foreign trade
    • Legal issues
    • Technology
  • Business training
  • Business networking
  • Links to opportunities for funding and investment
  • Links to Tecnológico de Monterrey’s research centers and laboratories

In addition to the comprehensive services offered, the Business Incubator Network has found that all companies and entrepreneurs have specific requirements if they are to obtain the desired development. For that reason, we have created two types of incubation:

On-Site Mode

In this mode, the entrepreneur has a workplace to carry out the operations of his business within the facilities of one of our business incubators at Tecnológico de Monterrey.

Online Mode

In this mode, we offer support services to those entrepreneurs and businessmen living far away from any of the Tecnológico de Monterrey’s business incubators, or to those who already have a place for their business operations. The Online Incubation service is accessed through Portal Emprendetec, providing entrepreneurs with a flexible and secure tool always available to them. This tool will provide them with guidance and assistance to build and develop a successful company.

Who Can Participate?

The Business Incubator Network developed by Tecnológico de Monterrey is intended for those entrepreneurs who wish to make their business idea come true. Hence it supports:

  • Students from all undergraduate and graduate programs offered by Tecnológico de Monterrey
  • Parents of Tecnológico de Monterrey’s students
  • Alumni from Tecnológico de Monterrey
  • Teaching and administrative staff from Tecnológico de Monterrey
  • General public wishing to start their own business
  • Entrepreneurs wanting to develop their business plan or to launch a new product line
  • Researchers and scientists seeking to develop their products or business
Where are the incubators located?

Today, the Tecnológico de Monterrey’s Business Incubator Network has 101 Business Incubators: 25 Intermediate Technology, 8 High Technology, and 67 Social Incubators. These Incubators are distributed nationwide; in addition, an Online Incubator provides services through the website Portal Emprendetec.
