Thoughts and discussion of the Incubator vs. independent approach?

I brought a previous project through a local technical University's well regarded, successful Startup Incubator. The project failed at the viable product phase. I am validating and building a team for my current project outside of the incubator, but I am concerned that the Incubator is a pre-qualifier that will expose my project to more and better VCs. There are other local VC networks and events. I'm curious as to your thoughts regarding each approach.
