Our range of offers

BASIS Vinschgau Venosta mixes economic and social priorities in its core business and tries to comprehensively compensate for the locational disadvantages of the Vinschgau valley. As a chance for founder initiatives, startups, freelancers to gain a favorable foothold but also as a development opportunity for companies and as a channel for civic engagement, the business model balances both. BASIS works in the niche, activates people and communities, achieves intersections and thus sustainably opens up innovation potential. It is therefore about the promotion and active support of entrepreneurs and start-ups in Val Venosta. BASIS aims to show how new forms of collaborative working can lead to a better and more inclusive development of society, through the promotion of innovation, the creation of synergies and added value. Providing new learning formats that meet the demands of the emerging, digitally connected world is also important in this regard.

An important part to which the Innovation Centre is dedicated is digital technology.

Meeting Industry - Space for events

We are a member of South Tyrol’s MICE organizers. Starting from IDM South Tyrol, the region presents itself since 2019 under the motto “Meet South Tyrol” as a place for M-eetings (conferences), I-ncentives (reward trips for employees organized by companies), C-onventions (congresses) and E-xhibitions (exhibitions). BASIS Vinschgau Venosta is a proud partner and venue. Thanks to the suitable premises in the building, we have space for large and small events. In addition, we combine work with leisure in the so-called Workation model.

Formats & Workshops

Ready, set, go!

The BASIS business and education formats take place regularly on site or in a partner company. Our goal is to bring the world to the village, i.e., to bring international developments and new products closer to local companies and to discuss them together. For this purpose, experts from Germany and abroad are invited. Work is done at the interface between modern economy and informal education. As a hub for the recognition and dissemination of knowledge as well as for qualitative practical experience among students, professionals, companies and communities, Basis aims to pick up on existing competencies, translate global trends and build creative potential. A constructive climate harbors courage to experiment, strengthens individual responsibility, and allows for dynamic as well as resilient growth. The workshops and lecture evenings usually end in a convivial networking round.



From theory to practical application out in the field, that’s BASIS Campo – an industry-independent event format by BASIS Vinschgau Venosta for all companies and those just starting out. It always takes place in a local company, with the intention of making it exclusively accessible to the public and presenting itself. Invited experts give impulse lectures on the theme. Afterwards there will be discussions and networking over an aperitif.



BASIS Vinschgau Venosta considers it important to involve motivated local people in projects and to offer them the opportunity to expand themselves and their business through our network. Among other things, we are concerned with the effects of economic ownership models, such as the platform-based cooperative system, which has a positive impact on the entire economy of the valley. BASIS Vinschgau Venosta is a central meeting point for trans-sectoral thinking and acting and functions also as a place for sector meetings.


BASIS Step by Step

The workshop series Step by Step – “From the idea to implementation” is primarily for prospective founders and interested entrepreneurs. On various topics, BASIS Vinschgau Venosta, together with experts, gives tips and tricks about business. Practical and theoretical experiences are shared, these are then brought into the right fit and are then applied.


School projects

As a place for dual development, we are pleased when educational institutions join us in designing projects. The premises of BASIS Vinschgau Venosta are well suited for holding workshops on specific topics. We are happy to make plans together with the teachers and, if necessary, we can arrange for external speakers to give presentations.

Partner Companies

Impact-oriented investing in the Vinschgau Valley

Impact-oriented investing refers to investments with the specific intention of achieving measurable, positive effects on the environment or society, in addition to a pure orientation toward return on investment or reimbursement through products and services. The need is particularly for measures for the purpose of prevention, innovation and scaling. This is the difference to classic sponsoring. For partner companies there is the possibility to actively participate in local economic, regional and social development outside of their own company. In addition, they can participate in university and practical educational measures and use the invested countervalue of products, services and spaces for themselves.

Overarching Impact

BASIS Point of Attraction

The solution-oriented, positive mindset, the many opportunities, the diverse industries, the multi-layered cultural scene and the international atmosphere make Basis a strong attraction for educated professionals, company founders and potential returnees. The still intact natural landscape, the top weather and the countless leisure and sports opportunities do the rest and are thus complemented with urban quality.

Overarching Impact

BASIS Speaking Channel

South Tyrol and especially the Vinschgau Valley have so far lacked a lighthouse project in terms of sustainable innovation. BASIS reinforces the common vision of a long-term sustainable South Tyrol at all levels and acts as a multiplier of these interests among politicians and the business community.

Overarching Impact

BASIS Network

One of the core competencies of BASIS is its function as a hub. Local players and international partners come together here under the banner of ecological transformation and sustainable innovation. The result is unique project cooperation with a win-win character for all stakeholders.
