Entrepreneurship has been recognized as a significant driver of national economic development. It is necessary to enhance the development of a productive and competitive entrepreneurship. In particular, information and communication technologies have emerged as valuable business tools for entrepreneurs from various countries. Practically, entrepreneurship-focused technologies have been utilizing scientific knowledge and technology to fulfill market needs. This research is aimed towards providing a framework for the development of entrepreneurship based on ICT with a particular focus on Indonesia as a developing country by exploring business incubation processes within a techno park in the country. The research is conducted by applying a qualitative method. The data are gathered through in-depth interviews based on a purposive sampling by including actors who have been involved in business incubations taken in a techno park in Indonesia. The results show that the Techno Park may have generally had limitations, including its process, tools, a low efficiency and a lack of financial autonomy. Still, the incubation process has been proven to have a role in increasing the work performance of tenants, market expansion, and improving accessibility to funding sources. This research offers theoretical and empirical implications towards the development of business incubation processes in entrepreneurship promotion activity, in which there is a need to involve quadruple-helix actors, i.e. academic, business, government and community.
