Concept study “New business incubators for Stuttgart”

What types of business incubators does Stuttgart need? Together with Studio Malta, Belius GmbH and PfAU, we are analysing the potential for business start-ups and strategies and measures that can be used to establish new technology and start-up centres for Stuttgart.

The city of Stuttgart wants to create sub-space-oriented infrastructures for the further dynamisation of start-up activities in the future with expanded space offers and new funding concepts. The concept study also aimed to identify the user needs of current and future founders in order to formulate leitmotifs and narratives for the city with a view to overarching challenges and requirements.

We accompany Stuttgart on the path of spatial and economic transformation. The aim was to develop spatial scenarios and typologies for start-up centres.
