The ITCG:

The Technology – Based Incubator of Creative and Innovative Enterprises (Incubadora Tecnológica de Empreendimentos Criativos e Inovadores – ITCG), located in Campina Grande, Paraíba, Brazil, conceived and managed by the Paraiba Science Park Foundation (Fundação PaqTcPB), supports innovative projects in the identification and development of its ideas, aiming at its viability and insertion in the market, from the creation to the consolidation, as a way to promote innovative entrepreneurship in our state and region.
The Incubator was created in 1986 with the initial objective of establishing professionals around the University Campus of Campina Grande, based on the promotion of its innovative ideas. Today, with the support of diversified and well-articulated partners, the Incubator has been consolidating itself in the exploration, mentoring, fostering and internationalizing of its businesses.
