What is Criminal Incubation?

On a global transnational level, the black market secretly influences financial losses, social change, governmental polices, and more. And much like a traditional venture capitalist, the criminal incubator provides the necessary capital needed to start up a venture or expand a pre-existing one. Ventures in the black market of course ranging from a wide and eclectic catalog of versatile vocation(s) and enterprising opportunists.

With the aid of a bright young statistical techno-mutant, Sequitur Crix; the Ghostshell is not only able to weigh and gamble criminal risks and 'ventures,' but also holds a secret position of powerful macroeconomic influence in the Gothic underworld. Where investment outcomes are a delicate alchemy of effective selection, careful investment oversight, and timely exits. Such alchemy is profoundly influenced by differences in the illegal environments and macroeconomic and sociopolitical conditions across the city's gang segregated areas, as well as international arenas of cyber anonymity.
