Incubator in Lugo

New business for territory
Value-added benefits. Advanced services.

The Lugo business incubator was created in 2003 to foster the development of business ideas and concretely support start-ups. The structure is located in two headquartes: one in Lugo and one in Voltana. The initiative is promoted by the Municipality of Lugo and by Unione dei Comuni della Bassa Romagna (Consortium of Municipalities in Bassa Romagna) and is run by Centuria Romagna Innovation Agency.

The incubator is a reference point for the creation of new business initiatives in the area. Thanks to Centuria's experience in this field, it offers valuable support in order for innovative ideas to be turned into real projects and then into a new business.

The Lugo Incubator has recently been included in ''The Italian start-up ecosystem: who is who’’, the first permanent observatory for business models and innovation in Italy. The project, developed by Italia StartUp in cooperation with the Polytechnic University of Milan and supported by the Ministry for Economic Development, aims at identifying, putting together and connecting the leading players in the Italian start-up system.

Two headquarters. One direction.

The incubator has two separate headquarters: Lugo and Voltana. The total surface area is 400 sq. metres, consisting of 12 modules equipped to house new businesses.

When joining our incubator, aspiring entrepreneurs or new businesses have access to:
  • exclusive use of premises, fully furnished and well equipped

We can thus significantly increase the survival rate and development opportunities for start-ups, allowing new businesses to be more aware and confident in making decisions about the development of their business and to reduce considerably the costs related to the start-up phase.
