The long‑term goal of our Next‑Incubator activities is to invest. The first thing we need in order to be able to invest is interesting startups, which we identify through calls for applications. The next thing we do is to work intensively in and with the team over the weeks and months that follow a call. The team consists of our experts on the one hand and of course the startup itself. We select team members internally, depending on the needs of the individual startup.


Our investment in IBIOLA Mobility Solutions demonstrates what can be expected of NEXT Vertriebs- und Handels GmbH going forwards: strong partnerships working together to optimise, develop and refine business models.

IBIOLA Mobility Solutions supplies a complete system for car sharing in local areas, which is currently being used by Energie Steiermark in their mobility management system.

As a first step, we are working with IBIOLA to revise their marketing strategy and optimise operational processes.

Securing investment from NEXT means we have acquired a strong partner who plays an active role and is truly present with us. We have already taken the first steps together and we are looking forward to the next ones.
