Where will the InnoLab take place?

The Workshops will take place in person in Dornbirn (AUT) at the Gravitat – BTV House of Innovation. The OMICRON InnoLab team will work on Monday and Tuesday at Gravitat and the rest of the week at the OMICRON headquarter in KLAUS.

What kind of support will participants receive at the event?

Teams will have access to a platform showcasing useful ressources to progress on the idea. Webinars, check-ins, and office hours will complement the support.

What will happen after InnoLab?

InnoLab ends with a Demo Day where you showcase your idea in front of the company partners, experts, mentors, and potential investors.
