This research attempted to create and explore the start-up business performance improvement model through effective incubation model. In the model improvement, the researchers used the entrepreneurship and resources based view theory to introduce supportive entrepreneurial environment concept and empowered business start-up as a variable, which can be used to fill the gap in the research. The research model was tested empirically to Startupreneurs in developing country who had joined business incubation with 120 respondent samples. It was then analyzed using structured equation modelling. The research result shows that effective incubation model does not have significant impact towards start-up business performance. However, it must be mediated by empowered start-up business. Supportive Entrepreneurial Environment is known to have an important role in building empowered start-up business, which then will increase start-up business performance.
