The best companies are born where the environment fosters their development. This requires more than general locational advantages such as good infrastructure, a strong economic landscape or a high level of education. That is why, with the support of the Bavarian Ministry of Economic Affairs, a network of business incubators has long been established in all regions of Bavaria, providing company founders with a comprehensive range of services and excellent framework conditions. The support provided by the incubators ranges from office and storage space at favorable rents and office equipment that can be shared, to advice and assistance in dealing with authorities and financiers, to specialist meetings and networking events.
The Bavarian technology and startup centers, which have also joined forces through ARGE-TGZ Bayern, help young companies with concrete support ranging from business know-how to low-cost rental space and capital procurement.
Digital and technology-oriented incubators specifically target start-ups in the high-tech sector, whereas general incubators are aimed at all start-ups, regardless of their sectoral focus. The centers themselves are predominantly supported by public shareholders and receive financial support from them.
The addresses of the individual business incubators can be found on the joint homepage of the Bavarian business incubators and technology centers or on the website of the Bavarian State Ministry of Economic Affairs, Regional Development and Energy (see "Further links").
