Being an entrepreneur has always been a possibility, and it was once called being a young businessperson, but due to inexperience, not age. Nowadays there are countless tools for learning more about the ins and outs of developing your own business idea, learning from the mistakes you and others have made, and helping out others who plan on starting a business initiative by focusing on the entire 360°. Since 2016, IQS Tech Factory has been available to support any entrepreneurial matters, whether or not they lead to the creation of a business.

If you have a business idea, you’ve come to the right place. IQS Tech Factory listens to your concerns and takes you to the next level. To do this, we need you to explain a little bit about what stage you are currently in by filling out this form so we can better focus our efforts.

Science + business = IQS Tech Factory

One of the greatest strengths at IQS is combining the School of Engineering and the School of Management on a single campus where the synergies between them facilitate a 360° vision of any business challenge. IQS is proud to create a unique strategic collaboration between the business network in our city and entrepreneurs and already established startups. This network of connections enables new entrepreneurs to advance their business ideas with the backup support to become extraordinary founders and directors.

Do you have a business idea but still need to polish its technical development? Have you developed a technology that you think has market potential? Do you work for a company and have an idea that would revolutionize your department?
