Innovation Support Centre is a part of VSB – Technical University of Ostrava. It provides a wide range of services connected with support of entrepreneurship, commercialization of R&D results, protection of intellectual property, popularization of science and technology and project support. As a part of the above mentioned activities we operate a Business Incubator and a Coworking space.
Innovation Support Centre is running its own startup program “GREEN LIGHT” and together with partners helps young entrepreneurs to implement their business ideas. The aim of the GREEN LIGHT is to support the interesting and viable ideas by special services which can speed up the start-up phase of business. GREEN LIGHT is mainly a Startup Accelerator, concluded by a final Startup Show. We also hold Maturity Test – meetings connecting investors with startups in order to get feedback on their readiness for investment.
Centre also organizes informal Apple Juice Meetings (AJM) which are primarily targeted at current and future entrepreneurs and innovation buffs. The aim of AJM is to share ideas, information and contacts among participants. Each AJM is focused on a specific topic and there is always a main guest - a successful entrepreneur willing to share his/her experience with starting entrepreneurs and other people interested in business.
Throughout the whole year we also organize irregular meetings with inspiring guests from the field of entrepreneurship, who can inspire students and young people with ideas on how to set up their own business. The format of these events varies and mainly aims to be an informal event in the evening, so the people from different background or occupations can attend
