Turning a good idea into a success story,


that’s the goal of each entrepreneur. IncubaThor is the ideal base for start-ups to take that leap, for researchers to start spin-off activities or to draw on the competences of the scientific and research environment in stimulating surroundings, as the R&D department of a larger national or an international company. 

IncubaThor provides entrepreneurial support for its companies.


Looking for an accountant, an investor, a sales market? IncubaThor brings this support to you. Take, for example, KIC InnoEnergy, also located at IncubaThor. KIC InnoEnergy provides financial and organisational support for entrepreneurs who modelled a product or service around Smart Energy, but are looking for a partner to launch it.

IncubaThor is part of the ecosystem of Thor Park,


where companies, research institutions, talent and investors meet. With Thor Park, the mining history of Waterschei is turned into an opportunity for the future. In a thoughtful way, the former mine site is transformed into the hotspot for technology, energy and innovation.



IncubaThor is a realisation of LRM, the city of Genk and KULeuven - with financial support from Flanders Innovation & Entrepreneurship.
