Access to inspiring environments is important for the development of ideas. Lund University cooperates closely with several incubators, which help newly started companies achieve faster growth.

VentureLab operates Lund University’s incubator – an open and creative office space at Ideon Agora, which is for students and recent graduates who want to start and run their own company or project.

The incubator brings together students from different programmes who have ideas in many areas. Here – without performance demands – they can utilise the incubator programme, which among other things offers continuous business development, workshops and lectures.

The students also gain access to an extensive network of people, companies and organisations in different sectors.

In addition to free-of-charge access to office space at the incubator, VentureLab offers confidential idea and business development to all students at Lund University.

VentureLab also organises inspirational activities to awaken interest in entrepreneurship as well as events where like-minded people can meet and share their experiences
