Incubator

Are you ready to invest fully in your business and strive to be able to live off your ideas? Have you come a bit down the road and begun to get to know your market? Are you grasping that it is not just about a strong will, but about routines, time and endurance as well? Then the Go Business incubator might be just the thing for you!

In the incubator you work in-depth with your entrepreneurship and get the tools to take the company forward and achieve your business goals. You grow together with other committed entrepreneurs and with the support of Go Business’ innovation leaders.

The participants in the incubator meet for workshops six times per semester, two of which can be attended online via the video tool Zoom. During these days we work together to develop the companies’ ideas and brands. You both give and receive feedback from the other participants and have great opportunities to influence which areas we should focus on. Please note that all lectures are held in Swedish!

In between the workshops you get individual coaching from your innovation leader and the opportunity to participate in weekly coffee get-togethers in Luleå, Piteå or Skellefteå with status updates and feedback rounds. The Hangout crew is joining in as well.

As an incubator company, you have access to office space in our creative environments in Piteå Science Park, Luleå Science Park and The Great Northern in Skellefteå. You become a part of the Go Business network where both current companies, alumni and our business partners inspire each other and find collaborations.

We can also offer extra support resources if you need to make investments in your company’s development to take it to the next level.
