The InnCubator

The startup incubator of the University of Innsbruck and the Economic Chamber of Tyrol

The InnCubator accompanies young founders in their development as entrepreneurs and mainly supports companies and startup teams in the early formation phase. The offered service is individually and flexibly adapted to the startups and is based on the strengths of the networks of the University and the Economic Chamber. <emTogether, we want to force the entrepreneurial ideas in Tyrol, create inspirational reasons to become entrepreneurs and strengthen the ecosystem for founders in a sustainable way. The principle of the InnCubator is co-creation, co-working and co-learning – become stronger together! The program of the InnCubator is based on three pillars:

  1. To inspire young Tyroleans to found their own business and to build a startup community;
  2. Training and further education in the core area of entrepreneurship;
  3. Coaching and support of young startups in their incubation phase including a co-working space.

An online talent pool connects startups with those who would like to be part of startups. Furthermore, the InnCubator can support the prototype construction of innovative products through generous workshops.

The cooperation between the University of Innsbruck and the Economic Chamber of Tyrol is unique and novel in this form. Just like the target group we want to reach with the InnCubator. Regional, we want to motivate those, who are interested in founding their own business and to support emerging startups. The target group are students, but also apprentices or newcomer who want to enter the path of entrepreneurship and have innovative startups and business ideas. As startups, we consider business foundations or ideas, which have a high level of innovation and are designed for rapid growth. Nationwide, the InnCubator should become a centre of attraction for startups in core areas that reflect Tyrol (e.g. alpine, tourism).

The InnCubator does not compete with the existing offer for founders in Tyrol, but will focus on people who are interested in starting their own business as well as supporting and accompanying startups in the best possible way. This includes the cooperation with and mediation to further offers in Tyrol during, but especially after the time in the InnCubator.
