Proximity to scientific research
Supported by a strong partner – yet fully independent as a VC firm. Thanks to our close affiliation with the Institute of Science and Technology Austria (ISTA), our portfolio companies can benefit from this partnership in various ways. Our mission is to bring the same level of excellence to business as ISTA is bringing to research.
Find out what our portfolio companies are working on and you will catch a glimpse of the future. From biologists working on programming the elements of life, to computer scientists exploring the possibilities of machine learning in healthcare and business, to material scientists manipulating the very objects we are in touch with every day. The spectrum of our portfolio is as broad as science itself.
IST cube is supported by InnovFin Equity, with the financial backing of the European Union under Horizon 2020 Financial Instruments and the European Fund for Strategic Investments (“EFSI”) set up under the Investment Plan for Europe. The purpose of EFSI is to help support financing and implementing productive investments in the European Union and to ensure increased access to financing.
