Abstract: Low density regions face many development challenges. In the Alentejo region of Portugal, and in many other Southern European regions, such challenges have been intensi ed by the cumulative e ects of the nancial and economic crises, and the subsequent austerity. In such context, and to promote region catching up and sustainable development, a number of policies designed to promote local entrepreneurial ecosystems have been reinforced. In this study, we focus on one of these policies’ instruments – business incubation - and on the region of Alentejo, and describe ve incubators implemented by a local regional development association (ADRAL), some municipalities, a national association of young entrepreneurs (ANJE), and a local association of entrepreneurs (NERE). We assess the incubators’ distinctive char- acteristics and those of some incubated projects, aiming at identifying the speci cities of this approach and its success determinants.
