The “one-stop shop” for founders in the life science sector

Life science companies need excellent office and laboratory infrastructure, but above all they need networking. The ZWT Accelerator actively promotes this networking with strategic partners from science and industry as a “one-stop shop” and is thus the ideal location for start-ups.

The existing ZWT has created a pull effect that is increasingly attracting start-ups from the life sciences to a location in the Medical Science City Graz. In order to meet this demand and to continue to promote the dynamic development (see ZWT magazine), the Styrian Business Promotion Agency SFG and the Medical University of Graz are jointly implementing the ZWT Accelerator. The project is co-financed by funding from the Province of Styria and the European Regional Development Fund. More information on IWB/EFRE can be found at .

Ideal location for start-ups & networking platform

For founders in the life sciences, the ZWT Accelerator functions as a “one-stop shop” whose services go far beyond providing office and laboratory space and infrastructure. Moreover, the ZWT Accelerator will be established as a networking platform with appropriate space – for the tenants to network with each other, but also for workshops and events with partners.
