Business incubators

Access to inspiring environments is important for the development of ideas. Lund University has close collaboration with several business incubators that help start-up companies grow more quickly.

Inside the Ideon building


VentureLab is a student incubator that supports students and recent graduates who are wondering about starting their own company. Since it opened in 2001, VentureLab has helped hundreds of companies to progress from idea to realisation. As well as offering free office space for a year to student companies, VentureLab also provides advice and lectures.
