Modular Workspaces

Because we at EPFL Innovation Park know what it is like to be a start-up,
we have made it possible for you to get up and running as quickly as possible.

Modular workspaces

Modular workspaces which can easily be expanded or reduced, IT resources are scaled up or down to meet your needs, and lease conditions are flexible. Common areas, outdoor spaces as well as the buildings are designed to maximize informal contact between you and your neighbors, because sometimes great ideas happen in the corridor over a cup of coffee.

Support and services

Through your personal EPFL Innovation Park coach, you get specific support to help you accelerate your growth  including access to investors (Business Angels, venture capital companies) and many other funding possibilities (CTI projects, foundations), as well as to diverse service providers in legal, human resources and accounting services.
