With the opening of Werkstätte Wattens in November 2015, we established an international centre for start-ups and company founders in parts of the Swarovski ‘Werk 2’ facility. This centre fosters and advises start-ups with innovative, technology-oriented business models and other companies in various stages of development.

In addition to a Co-Working Space, Team Offices, and Production & Workshop units, Werkstätte Wattens also offers a Fablab for individual use at our 6,500m² facilities. Our services and programmes for both business and prototype development, in addition to our partnership contacts in entrepreneurial ecosystems, support professional development and offer space and opportunity for interdisciplinary exchange and networking.
