Places from the city of Graz and tech2b

If you are from Graz or the tech2b network, you can apply for places provided by our partners City of Graz and tech2b. This increases your chances of being accepted. Of course, your application will be processed in any case.

 

Regular short reports

At the end of each month, participants are required to send a short report on the progress of the creative industry coworking to Kreativwirtschaft Austria, including important events and learnings as well as photo material. This enables us to ensure that the cooperation with the coworking spaces and partners is working. The short reports are used for communication purposes.

 

Subsidies

Participants also have the opportunity to apply for an internationalisation cheque from go-international (50% co-financing): www.go-international.at/foerderungen Reanne Leuning is available to answer any questions at reanne.leuning@wko.at. An acceptance for the Creative Industries Coworking does not go hand in hand with a fixed go-international funding.
