There are some very significant impacts from this program implementation:
a. Changes in public service delivery:
1. More proactive Business Incubation Technology service;
2. Easy public access to Business Incubation Service outside the physical institutional buildings;
3. More implemented research results from academia to communities;
4. More transparent Business Incubation Service gaining more public trust.
b. Positive impact on society
1. The impact on women's access to technology
Prior to this initiative, a group of women do not know and reach out to technology so they cannot take advantage of existing technology. After the implementation, the technology has been utilized for the production of rubber processing, operating computer for business management, as well as performing simple bookkeeping to record the flow of funds;
2. The impact on employment opportunities and increased productivity.
Prior to this initiative, working-age women had been very unproductive. After the implementation, a group of working-age women are able to use their spare time to produce an average of 20 products daily.
3. The impact on family welfare.
Prior to this initiative, most working-age women in Talang Kedondong Village were so dependent to their husbands. After the implementation, the women are able to support their family income. Assuming the productivity rate in regular days is 20 products with the price of IDR 5,000 (USD 0.5), each woman can earn roughly IDR 2,500,000 for 25 working days. For certain occasions, the numbers are absolutely doubled. This fact also improve the per capita income of the residents to the number of IDR 911,000 (USD 91.1).
4. The impact on Women Self-Actualization
Prior to the initiation of this project, most of the women were unable to actualize themselves. They just get together with the neighbors in a social gathering activities in the village. After the implementation, they are able to:
a. Broaden their knowledge and perception by attending several local and regional craft exhibitions;
b. Conduct a comparative study to Yogyakarta to gain more knowledge and experiences from many successful artisans;
c. Share their experiences in many entrepreneurial events held by the initiators;
d. Receive official and personal public visits from other regions and provinces.
The replication processes have been conducted in several provinces including Central Java, South Kalimantan, East Kalimantan, Banten, West Sumatera, Bengkulu, Jambi and Maluku.
Some national-level awards have also been received, including:
1. Prayogasala Science Award in 2011;
2. Budhipura Science Award in 2012 (Institutional Category);
3. Budhipura Science Award in 2013 (Networking Category);
4. Budhipura Kencana Science Award in 2014;

There are some aspects which have been prepared to ensure the implementation of replication, namely:
The replication process is done by implanting the initiative into Local Innovation System of South Sumatera Province on the sub-system of Research and Development Result Utilization;
In order to ensure and guarantee the sustainability of the program, the government authorities have issued following regulations:
a. Decree of the Head of BALITBANGNOVDA of South Sumatera Province on the Out-Wall Incubation Program Team;
b. Decree of the Governor of South Sumatera on Out-Wall and In-Wall Incubation Program;
