The Z-Kubator supports Zurich University of the Arts staff and students who want to contribute to the cultural and creative economies with independent projects, be it non-commercial cultural and design projects or with commercial start-ups.

Serving as an experimental learning laboratory, the Z-Kubator gives users the space to develop and test new business and operating models.

The ‘Z’ stands for our own interpretation of innovation incubation and nurturing new ventures: ensuring flexibility and agility in organisational terms, being in tune with the needs of artists and designers, and forging good networks with actual practitioners.
