Given the context you explained then I have to say I agree with both
Bertrand and Upayavira. On the other hand, I don't see any harm not
graduating from the Incubator and the project staying there for longer
time till the criteria of having more new blood into the project is
satisfied, and specifically in your context new blood should also come
from out side the context of graduate students, maybe some other
research schools/institutes or even commercial companies seeing some
benefit in what has been produced by this project.
