About Movexum

Value-creating, inspiring, guiding and challenging.

Our remit to create growth in the region by taking innovative ideas and turning them into commercial products and services gives us our core values, direction and support. Since we started in 2008, we have helped approximately 100 entrepreneurs and innovators. A few of the companies have now been listed on the stock exchange, most of them currently have several employees, and some of them have really changed people's lives with their solutions, and provided them opportunities they otherwise would not have had. We are proud that our activities have contributed to some of the success stories of our region.

At Movexum, we are not only passionate about helping people build successful companies from their ideas, we are also very engaged in issues such as equality and equal opportunities. For us it´s important that when you come to us with your idea, the only things that are assessed are the potential of your idea and your personal motivation, nothing else.

Being a Movexum incubator company doesn´t only mean that we professionally support and help you progress, both your company and yourself, it also means you become part of a great community that offers you support, motivation, knowledge and of course competence. A warm welcome to you!
