Three years in the Start-up Incubator. How to make the most of them.

Start-up Performance Analysis

Once a year, your start-up’s strengths and weaknesses will be assessed. We also analyse the market and highlight opportunities and risks. This analysis is used to define your milestones.


We offer our start-ups regular workshops, academies and coaching sessions – with experienced companies as well as with investors. You can benefit from their know-how and market knowledge.

Mentoring network

Exclusively for your start-up: 10 hours of mentoring per year. As part of the Interreg projects Startup.Euregio and Startup.Accelerate, we have set up a mentoring network with entrepreneurs. Let us connect you.

Networking & Community

Stop brooding by yourself. We connect you with strategic partners and integrate you into the NOI community.

Space for start-ups

We offer 2,700m² of offices, labs and meeting rooms. Our campus is constantly growing. Everyone crosses paths. In the community bar, the kitchenettes, the palm garden or the piazza. NOI is buzzing.

Eager to join the start-up community? Want more information about opportunities, services and prices?

The prospect of success. That is our main criterion. How do we identify it? We look at how your team works and whether your idea is future-oriented, and we evaluate the market potential and your financing strategy. We do not raise false hopes. We promote business models.


Ready for the Start-up Incubator? How to bring your start-up into play.

Call for start-ups. The Start-up Incubator welcomes newcomers several times a year.

As a start-up owner, you always have your eyes and ears open. So you will not miss this opportunity. There are two selection phases. In phase one, we focus on formalities: Is your application complete? Is your motivation letter compelling? Is your business plan complete? Who is on your team? Most importantly: Are you already a start-up? And: Are you based in South Tyrol?

A stress test for your start-up. In round two, things get real. Is your presentation convincing?

Are all your documents complete? Great, on to round two. Now you need to be on top form: Time to present your start-up to the selection committee. First, we look at the person who wants to conquer the market with their start-up. Do you have an entrepreneurial mindset? Then we check your idea’s innovativeness, market potential and financing strategy. Do you have what it takes?

Well done! You’re in the start-up community. You can count on us for three years.

Time to get to work. But hold on! First, you have to move into NOI. Right away. Through workshops, seminars and personalised training, we support you in developing a competitive company. We put you in touch with potential partners and find ways to get you financing. Get into the NOI groove: in the coworking spaces, the labs, at the community bar and in the palm garden. Innovation is everywhere.

Check the submission deadline. Review the criteria. Get going. The world needs bold start-ups.
