Formation of EnterprisesTransfer Centre

Career through Independence

The Transfer Centre for the Formation of Enterprises is organised as a department for service and coordination for potential founders and successors of enterprises from the Upper Austria University of Applied Sciences.

We are the only University of Applied Sciences in Austria with this unique offer. Extensive offers for service and coordination both in practical experience as well as in teaching, facilitating the first steps to one's own business, are provided on all four campuses.


We see ourselves as companions, contact persons and mediators for potential founders in Upper Austrian degree programmes in Applied Sciences in Wels, Steyr, Linz and Hagenberg.

Our primary goal is to take on ideas, to test marketability and to support young entrepreneurs with their market entrance and beyond with the development of their business. The Transfer Centre sees itself as a preliminary stage for further supporters of the formation of a business and provides necessary contacts.
