Are you looking for the perfect place to make your idea grow?
The Technopole lets young, innovative companies in Ticino find their own niche, giving them access to all of the tools and services needed for their growth. It is a place where they can compare themselves with similar companies in a dynamic, collaborative environment. When companies enter the Technopole, they instantly become part of the innovation ecosystem network, with all the players and tools on hand to support the development of their project.
Would you like to become part of the Ticino Technopole Community?
There are several ways that you can join. You could get an office space starting from CHF 210 per month, expenses included. Or just complete the membership form, and for CHF 150 per year, you can enjoy some exclusive benefits!
The Touch plan provides an affiliation without a physical location, allowing Technopole alumni, early-stage projects or ecosystem actors to forge constructive relationships with the Technopole Community. In this way, they can make the most of targeted initiatives allowing them to interact with innovation actors for future exchanges and collaborations, or to develop new innovative processes for which they require our support.
The Start plan is ideal if you want to open the first office for your innovative company. Even if it is just a desk, you will benefit from the image of having a suitable representative location, not forgetting first-class facilities and a productive network of contacts. This is not just any co-working space: it offers the strategic positioning and innovative spirit that you can only find at the Ticino Technopole. Our networking activities and the willingness among tenants to create synergies, not forgetting the constant contact with our team and the Regional Innovation System, all make the Ticino Technopole the ideal place to set up your start-up. And if you grow quickly, upgrading from a desk to a small office will be extremely flexible and fast.
Scaling is the most delicate phase for your start-up, when your start-up must grow and become a company. The Scale plan at the Ticino Technopole offers you an office space starting at 30 m2 as well as many other benefits, along with additional targeted services related to coaching, financing and assisted patent research. These are key aspects for growing and internationalising your start-up.

Do you identify as a start-up or innovative company?
he Ticino Technopole welcomes start-ups and innovative companies in their initial stages of growth. Two key elements must set the activities of our tenants apart:
It must not be limited to being a new idea and nothing else. The Agire Foundation believes that innovation means innovation in products, processes or businesses models. In addition, business projects must be focused on a concrete application that fulfils a need in the national or international market.
Not all new business projects are scalable. According to our definition, the products and services developed must be able to be replicated anywhere, in such a way that the business can be multiplied exponentially beyond regional borders.
Resident companies must meet the established quality standards regarding the degree of innovation of their projects and products, as well as those concerning the contractual and salary conditions of their employees.
