How we started
Incubator for urban sustainability
‘Innovation im Grätzl – incubator for urban sustainability Vienna’ was the first institutionalized incubator program of the Blue Minds Factory with support of the City of Vienna. Together, eight start-ups from the green tech area participated for several months. The incubator for urban sustainability in Vienna offered entrepreneurs and start-ups a wide range of support such as mentoring, networking to a variety of economic sectors and key players in terms of specific know-how, development and implementation of financial concepts, pilot applications, product development and marketing strategies, the provision of appropriate, cost-effective infrastructure and professional public relations. The incubator program was thereby personalized and tailored to the needs of each start-up, depending on its stage of development. With ‘Innovation im Grätzl’ (which means ’Innovation in the district’) we contributed to the establishment of Vienna as a green tech hub and made aware of promising energy, climate and resource solutions.
