Twelve months of development

Interested in joining the KTH Innovation pre-incubator program?

The application period to the KTH Innovation pre-incubator program will open in January 2021. Sign up and we'll send you a reminder when it's time to apply. 

The KTH Innovation pre-incubator program is a 12 month program to accelerate the development of promising startup projects from KTH. The program will ask a lot of you, but in return, we’ll give you all it takes to get you as far as possible. When you present your project at Demo Day in a year, you won't believe how far you've come.

Being part of the program has been a lot of fun, If we hadn’t had the weekly meetings we wouldn't have come as far as we have. It really motivates you to see others succeed, and it's really nice to work alongside other teams. You can ask questions or just brainstorm an idea.

The teams in the program get access to KTH Innovation’s co-working space on Teknikringen 1. Here, at the center of innovation at KTH, you’ll develop side by side with others working to bring their own projects to life. Every week, you'll meet over lunch to take part in our tailor made online workshop program. You get higher priority from the KTH Innovation team and access to our network. Together with the almost 200 alumni projects, the teams in the program form a supportive community.

Over 80% of the teams in the program finish it successfully, and we’re proud that many of our teams and alumni are creating impact around the world.

Who can apply?

All teams formed by students, researchers and employees at KTH can apply to the program. You have started developing your idea, and you are ready to work towards launching on the market in a year or two.

All events and workshops are currently digital. Our co-working space and offices at Teknikringen 1 are open but with some restrictions. We follow the recommendations from the Public Health Agency and the guidelines from KTH
