Abstract: 
Today, incubators play a very important role in the economic and industrial development of developed and developing countries. Incubators are designed to support educated entrepreneurs and provide the growth opportunities for new companies by providing them general facilities. Identifying and studying the various factors that are affecting the development of entrepreneurship and incubators can be effective in policy making for the promotion of entrepreneurial activities. The present study sought to identify the factors affecting the development of incubators, identifying 36 factors and categorizing them in six categories containing company general characteristics, manpower characteristics, infrastructures, market and competition, financial affairs and environmental factors. The statistical population of the study consists of 6 experts from the incubator of Technology Units of the University of Guilan. Prioritizing 36 factors using the analytic network process methodology indicates that five factors: supporting mechanisms (government and university), the existence of experienced consulting teams, organizational structure of companies based in incubators, the field of activity of these companies and their age have the highest priorities than other factors, in other words, they have the greatest impact on the development of incubators. Of course, given that the prioritization of these factors has been used by experts in the incubator of Technology Units of the University of Guilan, it can not be fully generalized to other Centers.
