Our target group is young entrepreneurs, both women and men, up to 40 years old who have recently started or are about to start a company in Umeå. We welcome anyone who has turned 18 and finished with high school studies. Of course, you can always contact us if you want to discuss your idea and ways to develop it further.

You get a fully furnished office space for two people in a creative environment, business coaching tailored to your needs, lectures and workshops, access to a strong network, and membership to a community of entrepreneurs. Additionally, you have unrestricted access to reliable WIFI, meeting spaces, printing facilities, and coffee machines to help you stay focused on growing your business.

The biggest difference is the help you get to develop and grow your startup. You are accepted to join us because we believe in you and your business idea, so at BIC Factory, you get two years of office space plus coaching and guidance adapted to your needs. A co-working space can be a good solution when you emerge from our incubator and set up an office of your own.

You can be with us for two years. After that time, the idea is that you can stand on your own two feet and grow your company independently.
