MCI Innolab was launched in Mid May in cooperation with EEE Project, CAST and Startup.Tirol, in Innsbruck, Tyrol.

It is realised as a Boot Camp with 8 participating teams which work together with lecturers and experts in order to learn more about commercialising inventions and starting up a company. Until mid/end of June 2017 all teams will be coached and mentored individually with the aim to foster their entrepreneurial ideas and visions.

The Boot Camp approach was adopted as a tool out of the Entrepreneurship Toolkit in the course of the EEE Project initiative which is currently in progress. Accordingly, MCI is implementing and thereby prototyping the module ‘Boot Camp’ which has been developed for the course of the EEE Project project.

The Innovation Lab (Innolab) 2017 at MCI is a first initiative in cooperation with the Startup.Tirol and the EEE Project Regional Alliance development. Currently the board of Startup.Tirol is agreeing on a common event calendar which should capture and summarise all relevant events and activities in the field of entrepreneurship throughout the region of Tyrol. Furthermore, MCI is planning the National Launch Event which will be most probably realised together with the ‘Standortagentur Tirol’ and possible also Startup.Tirol in early Fall 2017.
