Certainties and performance for business growth

The Startup Factory is an incubator for startup companies where the best ideas are grown into successful companies together with educational institutes.

Our incubator is intended for teams that have their own scalable product or service idea as well as the will to grow. We offer both individual and company-specific performance and business coaching to teams aiming for the top.

In education-centred entrepreneurial training we will coach you on how to test and implement your idea and build your own success story.

Through our events we inspire people to put themselves and their business to the test and to develop both. Come to network with us and meet others inspired by entrepreneurship.

A successful company is always led by a healthy entrepreneur

No business can succeed if the people behind it are not doing well. This is why our coaching focus not only on developing business but also the company’s most crucial resource – its people. 

Our Performance Program focuses on developing the companies’ performance, team spirit and culture. According to studies, a happy work community can achieve a turnover difference of up to 30% compared to their competitors and six times the investment value of occupational well-being.
