Among the many different types of business incubators, the most significant type involved in creation of employment opportunities, boosting the local economy, and commercializing particularly innovative technologies is termed as the 'technology incubators.' Just like the rest of the world, Government of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) is working to bring innovative businesses promising to contribute in the nation's technological growth at the heart of its financial policies.
