What an efficiently-functioning business incubator acting in a region of the Weimar Triangle ought to look like? Providing the description of such an incubator requires the analysis of a number of factors exerting influence upon the functioning of that. Policy, legal and economic conditions, the character of a given region, and also a number of economic factors, and also correlations existing inside an incubator are merely a few of the elements exerting a significant influence upon establishing and functioning in case of that incubator. In conjunction with European integration, it is necessary to find efficient recipes for the sustainable development of the economies of the regions. Modern business incubators serve in the capacity of the generator of innovative bonds and processes, and, by this same fact, of the development of innovativeness and technological progress. The competitiveness of the regions of the Weimar Triangle may be preserved solely by means of increasing the innovativeness of enterprises; due to this fact, incubators ought to be striving to accomplish specialization and also internationalization. Incubators and also enterprises situated in them ought to be the components of the larger cluster of enterprises. An entrepreneur commencing his or her activity needs information, but very frequently does not know, where this information might be obtained. For this very reason, incubation is, first and foremost, about communication. A contemporary business incubator ought to be acting upon the basis of very strong competences, supported with efficient internal and external communication, efficient services and efficient infrastructure.
The issues presented in this treatise and connected with the functioning of business incubators in Silesia, in North Rhine-Westphalia and also in Nord-Pas-de-Calais may be of use for creating new efficient business incubators also in other regions.
