A SUCCESS STORY
The Go Business concept was born from a survey about the student culture in Piteå 2007. In order to develop entrepreneurship, a wish for a physical social meeting place was expressed, where new entrepreneurs could nourish and develop their corporate ideas with the support of each other. Based on this thought, an incubator was started, and the rest is as you usually say: “history”.
Go Business has been in its current form since 2008, with office in Acusticum at the Piteå Science Park. Since then, the incubator has grown both in size, diversity and content. Initially, focus was exclusively on new entrepreneurs in the creative and cultural industries. Today, everyone is welcome with business ideas – engineers as well as creatives. We have participants of all ages from different service sectors and Go Business is a well-known concept all over the region.
In line with increased interest in the incubator and its methods, new services have been gradually developed. Today, Go Business Incubator is established in Piteå, in Luleå, at Luleå Science Park and in Skellefteå, at The Great Northern. In addition, we develop a digital test bed, a service that means that entrepreneurs can get our help no matter where in nothern Sweden they are situated.
Since 2008, more than 180 new entrepreneurs have taken the opportunity to run a business with the help of Go Business Incubator. A large number of these are still active as self-employed on a full or part-time basis.
