    Mission and vision

    Start:up Nova Gorica is an innovative platform fostering entrepreneurial breakthrough of the town of Nova Gorica – being a university hub – and its regional and cross-border area. We want to make the Goriška region entrepreneur-friendly, putting it on a map of international hubs. The entity responsible for Start:up Nova Gorica is the Primorska Technology Park, which is one of the most notable and important stakeholders within Slovenia’s entrepreneurship & innovation ecosystem.  
    Start:up Nova Gorica on the one hand brings together successful local entrepreneurs, enterprises, educational institutions, mentors, and investors from the Goriška region, providing users with a thorough insight into young yet very ambitious entrepreneurship ecosystem of the region. 

    Co-creators of the programmes hosted by Start:up Nova Gorica in collaboration with Start:up Slovenia Initiative have provided everything that the town of Nova Gorica and the entire Goriška region need to realise business ideas: the most up-to-date business knowhow required to engage talents and launch start-ups, media recognition, modern offices, mentors, and access to financial resources. 

    Start:up Nova Gorica is a programme platform, open to any individuals or organisations who wish to contribute their share towards a developed, dynamic, and enterprising-talents-friendly region. 

    Our goals

    We have set rather ambitious targets by 2020:

    create 100 new businesses
    included in the programs
    of 220 corporate teams
    create 250
    new jobs

    The Start:up Nova Gorica community is supported largely by three municipalities of the Goriška region, which are the holders of the Primorska Technology Park, the entity managing and coordinating the Start:up Nova Gorica platform. They are the Municipality of Nova Gorica with its base in Nova Gorica, the Municipality of Šempeter-Vrtojba with its base in Šempeter pri Gorici, and the Municipality of Renče-Vogrsko. Thanks to its talented and enterprising individuals, a well-established industrial zone, favourable location near the Ljubljana-Venice highway and four international airports (Venice, Treviso, Ljubljana, Trieste), closeness to the Italian border, and a number of cultural and natural heritage sites (e.g. Tombs of the Bourbons in Nova Gorica, Solkan Bridge over the Soča River, Vogrsko Mansion and Coronini Mansion in Šempeter, Kromberk Castle etc.) the Goriška region is an attractive area to live and work in.

    Nova Gorica, with its increased entrepreneurial opportunities, homes several innovative, fast-growing, and globally recognised companies which have been role models and driving forces and have created, together with newly emerging start-ups, a dynamic start-up community.
