The prospect of success. That is our starting point. 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.

Our Call for Start-ups:

Twice a year, the doors to the Start-up Incubator will open - this is your chance to apply!

You will go through two selection phases:

In phase one, we focus on formalities: Is your application complete? Is your motivation letter compelling? Is your business plan ready? 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. 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.

Keep an eye out: check the submission deadline. Review the criteria. Get going. The world needs bold start-ups.


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

Start-up Performance Analysis

We will assess your start-up’s strengths and weaknesses. We also analyse the market and highlight opportunities and risks. This allows us to better identify your needs, define possible milestones – and understand how we can best help you achieve them.

Academies & Trainings

We regularly offer our start-ups workshops and academies on relevant topics with a variety of experts. This way you can exchange ideas and work on different topics together with experts and the other start-ups.

Coaching & Mentoring

Targeted coaching and mentoring sessions with entrepreneurs, experts and investors: Benefit from their expertise and market knowledge. And their network.

Networking & Community

Stop brooding by yourself. We connect you with strategic partners and our investor network. And we 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. And offers lots of opportunities to get in touch with each other: in the community bar, the kitchenettes, the palm garden or the piazza.
