FACTORY - The incubation programm of Startup Salzburg

With the FACTORY incubation programme, we support innovative, market- and start-up-ready Salzburg start-ups every year. We accompany you for twelve months in your individual development steps.

Our new additional programme FACTORY+ (AplusB) promotes research-, technology- and innovation-based start-up projects in particular and supports you with special additional services.
