IDEAS INCUBATED FOR SUCCESS : A study on an incubator's strengths and weaknesses within the Swedish innovation system (English)
Abstract [sv]

Idélab är en statligt finansierad och icke-kommersiell inkubator inom Mälardalens högskola. Deras huvudsakliga uppdrag är att ge utvecklande stöd till idéägare och entreprenörer som har en direkt koppling till högskolan. Majoriteten är studenter som sällan har erfarenhet kring produkt- och affärsutveckling. Behov, ambition och kunskap hos studenterna skiljer sig när de kommer till inkubatorn. Idélab utmanas i att anpassa sina processer till att tillfredsställa alla, och att göra det med skäliga resurser. Istället för att ta reda på ifall Idélab kan öka antalet framgångsrika tillväxtbolag, ger uppsatsen en uppfattning om att verksamhetsstrategin bör vidareutvecklas. Verksamheten behöver mer djupgående kartlägga och kategorisera sina användare utifrån deras behov och inriktning. Därmed är rekommendationen att omformulera vision och interna samt externa mål. Detta skulle kunna förtydliga deras egen definition av vad framgång och hållbar tillväxt betyder för just deras användare och dom själva.

Abstract [en]

Idélab is a government financed and non-commercial incubator within Mälardalen University. Their main objective is to give developing support to idea holders and entrepreneurs who have a direct connection to the university. The majority are students that rarely have experience regarding product- and business development. The students need, ambition and knowledge differs when they enter the incubator. Idélab is challenged with adapting their processes to satisfy everyone, and to do so with reasonable resources. Instead of finding out whether or not Idélab can increase the number of successful and growing companies, the dissertation gives the notion that an operational strategy rather be further developed. The organization needs to map out and categorize their users with focus on need and direction. Therefore the recommendation is to redefine the vision and internal as well as external goals. This could help to clarify their own definition of what success and sustainable growth means to their users and themselves.
