The purpose of this journal is to present the development and implementation of a virtual incubator aimed at assisting students in establishing their businesses. The virtual incubator offers the flexibility and accessibility required for entrepreneurial endeavors to thrive in an increasingly interconnected world. The research methodology employed a research and development approach, combining interviews with key personnel from university incubator departments, lecturers, and students, as well as conducting Focus Group Discussions (FGDs). The collected data informed the creation of a virtual incubator prototype, which was subsequently tested at the Nobel Indonesia Institute of Technology and Business. The virtual incubator serves as an assistant to student entrepreneurs, providing them with the necessary tools and resources to develop their business ideas Virtually. By utilizing information and communication technologies, the virtual incubator enables students to access mentorship, networking opportunities, and relevant resources regardless of their physical location. This eliminates geographical barriers and allows students to work on their businesses at their convenience, promoting a flexible and conducive entrepreneurial environment. The research findings demonstrate the successful implementation of the virtual incubator prototype, showcasing its effectiveness in supporting student entrepreneurs. Through interviews and FGDs, insights were gained into the preferences and requirements of students, as well as the challenges they face when establishing businesses. These findings guided the development of a user-friendly and comprehensive virtual incubator platform.
