There are a few key differences between incubators and startups. First, incubators are typically shorter-term programs that provide resources and support for a set period of time, after which the startups are expected to be self-sufficient. Startups, on the other hand, are usually longer-term projects that require more intensive support and funding. Additionally, incubators typically work with a larger number of companies at once, while startups are usually single entities. Finally, incubators typically have a more specific focus, such as in a particular industry or sector, while startups can be working on a wide variety of projects.
