IQS Tech Factory, the center for entrepreneurship of IQS, opened its doors in 2015 as the first industrial incubator in Spain. Since its launch, IQS Tech Factory aims to contribute to industrial development by turning disruptive technologies into business opportunities.
We promote and offer support to promising tech ventures by organizing presentations, workshops, network events and providing assessment at different stages of a startup’s development.
Currently, we provide support to 21 startups both from within the university and from outside. The ventures belong to the following sectors: advanced industrial techniques; automatization; energy and environment, food, new materials, life sciences, and chemistry. These 21 startups create 110 jobs and already mobilized over 12,4 million euros in investment.
If you’re a science-based startup and you’re looking for support, don’t hesitate to contact us; we are looking to turn your project into reality!
