In this article I will highlight and explain two key differences between incubators and accelerators. The first difference has to do with what stage a startup is at: That is, incubators typically accept startups (i.e. founders) at the idea-stage, whereas accelerators only accept early-stage startups, i.e. startups who are beyond the idea stage and have some kind of prototype or product made. The second difference I’ll explain towards the end.
