If startup is like blood in this growing economy, then incubators and accelerators are like veins and arteries. Without the veins and arteries, the blood has no relevance.

We at www.indianweb2.com understand this and have hence combined a list of the best incubators and accelerators in Delhi to make things easier for all the startups taking their first big step in the business world.

Before starting with the list, we would like to clear one thing, the basic difference between incubators and in accelerators. Both these terms are used interchangeably a lot of times but it is important to understand the basic difference between them if you are planning to venture into this big startup world.

Incubators are organisations that incubate a startup's early product idea, help them in making a prototype and then finally make a product out of it. On the other hand, accelerators are the ones responsible for accelerating or increasing the speed of a startup's business.They are short, intense programs that help a startup build its idea and hone their skills.The engagement of an incubator is for a more duration than the accelerator.
