A ‘tough tech business incubator’ and spin-off expert for academic R&D, defining business success for startups in the Lower Austrian region. Exemplary well.
Good for the Company
Accent Inkubator (accent) has long been working toward an accessible, tailored and demand-driven business incubation environment in the rural backyard of Vienna. They were the first in the academic R&D field to develop a unique incubation method shifting away from a structure uniform approach addressing spin-offs in the Viennese universities and their focus on the individual needs of a business idea coming out of the academic sector. Their coaching and workshops on spin-off relevant topics and accent’s focus on increasing teaching capacities with its Creative Pre-Incubator accelerator for universities of applied science guarantees a steady inflow into their main incubation programme for high-tech companies.
Supporting the full growth trajectory of their clients, Accent is also committed to internationalising its incubated startups whenever possible and was one of the pioneering incubator members of the pan-European CERN BIC Network. More recently, accent carries responsibility for space startups in the North-Eastern region in Austria, as the local incubation partner of the European Space Agency (ESA) BIC Network. Joining the EBN network and aiming for EU|BIC certification was a well-thought-through next step.
‘’Knowing several other certifications, we know that the EU|BIC certificate is the only one accepted by the European Commission and stands for high quality. The decision for all co-operations in the past was always focused on excellence and not on quantity’’, shares Michael Moll.
