The Technopark project for Liechtenstein, which was initiated in spring 2016, has fulfilled its hope of entering the Swiss Technopark-Alliance. This Technopark-network supports founders by helping them learn from others experiences.
The Technopark Liechtenstein, which is nearing its completion, has been accepted into the Swiss Technoparks network. Liechtenstein was officially welcomed into the network during the Technopark-Alliances general assembly, reported weekly newspaper Wirtschaft Regional, becoming the seventh location in a list that also includes the Technoparks Aargau, Lugano, Lucerne, Schlieren-Zurich, Winterthur and Zurich. The network allows founders to share their experiences, with the aim of also benefiting future Liechtenstein members.
Going forward, the Technopark Liechtenstein will give founders the opportunity to develop themselves and build networks. They will be supported all the way, from their initial business idea through to realising this idea. The initiative was formed as an undertaking in March 2016, and is supported by three established businesspeople from Liechtenstein: Magnus Tuor, Franz Wachter and Othmar Oehri.
The initiators are hoping to attract an innovative mix of sectors to the Technopark, according to their online presence, with the selection criteria defined to this end. Sought after are start-ups and start-up ideas in the following fields: communication and security technology, packaging, environment and recycling industry, measurement and control technology, automation and financial technologies.
