I think incubators are just replacing it wholesale. The theory was you go to business school to learn entrepreneurship. But the reality is they're going to spend two years and $200,000 learning from some guy who's never started a company in his life. Things move very, very quickly today. At an incubator, you're going to learn fast in a community of your peers in an environment where there's pressure on deliverables and shipping schedules.
