After two years of preparation Technopark Liechtenstein is now open for innovative start-ups. Start-ups can apply to rent office space at the facility, but they will also receive on-going assistance in implementing their business ideas as well as access to a network of universities and investors. The facility opened its doors to the public on 8 July.
The project was initiated by three established entrepreneurs from Liechtenstein:
Magnus Tuor, Franz Wachter and Othmar Oehri. Technopark Liechtenstein also belongs to the Swiss Technopark Alliance. Other partners include the University of Liechtenstein and the NTB Interstate University of Applied Sciences of Technology Buchs. It is supported by Telekom Liechtenstein and First Advisory Group.
The main objective of the founding trio is to further develop the Liechtenstein workplace with a particular focus on new technologies that “represent the existing industry,” said Tuor in an article in Wirtschaft Regional. The aim is to bring future technologies with high added value to Liechtenstein.
Three start-ups have already moved into Technopark Liechtenstein, one of which is Fitto, which seeks to revolutionise football training with an app for mobile phones. The other two start-ups are teVidi, which is working on mobile monitoring solutions, and Stroke App Technologies, which wants to provide digital solutions to stroke patients during rehabilitation.
