AplusB network

The Austrian incubation network supporting innovative start-ups
An Austria-wide network with Science Park Graz at the green heart of it
Join Austria's oldest and most influential incubation network

To leverage the vast innovation potential emerging from our sublime, excellence-driven universities and research institutions, the Federal Ministry for Transport, Innovation and Technology founded in 2002 what we call Austria’s oldest and most impactful incubation network today: AplusB – Academia plus Business. Ever since then, the five AplusB incubation centres have been acting as a catalyst in the process of transforming research-driven innovation projects into internationally successful businesses.

Backed by strong funding partners under the lead of Austria Wirtschaftsservice, and a closely linked network including not only almost all of Austria’s universities, but also a great number of industry players, the network has achieved an impressive track record so far: Almost 90% of the over 700 supported start-ups are still active and successful.
