Startup Program
Transformation by Action

Microcity aims to accelerate business success. Our Startup Incubation Program encourages entrepreneurship by proactively engaging entrepreneurs.

We guide entrepreneurs with projects or ideas to accelerate the development of their business in "Transformation by Action" mode. The incubation process is based on the creation of value: would you like to join our process?
