There are different organizational units to promote corporate innovations these days. Especially corporate incubators are one way to encourage radical innovations outside the core business. One of the major challenge thereby is the reintegration of innovations into the corporate process. The author therefore develops a model for a situation specific transfer process for innovation from corporate incubators that fit to the corporate strategy. Up to now it is not examined in literature which types of innovations are originally developed within corporate incubators. In this paper we therefore examine different types of innovations and identify which of them occur in different innovation environments, especially corporate incubators. By identifying 5 characteristic types of corporate incubator s a more detailed allocation of the innovation types is made due to their distinctive competencies.
