What are the best experiences when you start your own business? How do you feel when you implement an idea from scratch and build your own company? Founders are the new heroes of our time. They launch like explorers into worlds that are new to them and are often exposed to dangers that can lead to failure. They sometimes find themselves in situations that challenge them and generate maximum tension. In business incubators, they find backing and support within a network of like-minded people and experts.
