The future is formed in an innovative ecosystem of networking and cooperation.

BTC Living Lab: a city of innovation and advanced technologies

The right place for
innovative ideas and digital transformation.

BTC DIGIT manages the Business Transformation Center. Its three pillars of operation create an ecosystem for connecting and collaboration, a focal point for innovation where we create added value with our partner companies under the guidance of our open company strategy. A wide range of different activities, numerous business partners and 21 million visitors per year make BTC the ideal place to build a platform for collaborating with companies in their transformation towards greater digitalisation, constant innovation, testing of innovative solutions in the BTC City Living Lab and launching successful stories into the world.

Three pillars of operation 

A place where we develop concepts into reality.

A place where companies reinvent existing business models, tie into the startup ecosystem and transform innovative ideas into breakthrough solutions that change the world. The ABC Accelerator and its fresh business accelerator program (ABC Enterprise Accelerator) provides companies with a complete program for leveraging internal innovation potentials and connects them with other stakeholders into a complete innovation ecosystem that empowers companies to foster such programs independently in the future.

Establish the creative spirit and
agility of Silicon Valley in your company.

We are living in extraordinary times. The onset of digitalisation over the past 30 years has made every industry a social, mobile and global experience. The arrival of sensors, data collection, Internet Items, AI, machine learning, 3D printing and robotics is swiftly moving us forward into a new hyper digital era. Every industry is becoming smart and connected. Companies that do not follow trends and fail to adapt are left behind.

Most company managers dwell on the same issues: Which events are coming and where are we positioned? Where can we find large and open fields of opportunity where no company holds a major market share? All fields of the industry are constantly reshaped and transformed at a pace that requires careful planning and rapid innovation abilities at all levels of the company. This creates new business opportunities for visionaries that know how to do everything to assure that their companies maintain their leadership positions for the coming generation of business.

Establish the pioneering and creative spirit of Silicon Valley with ABC and EDG.

The ABC Accelerator has established a strong presence in Silicon Valley. Silicon Valley is the spiritual home of creativity, innovative and breakthrough ideals, a special energy and entrepreneurial spirit. More than half of all the startup investment capital in the USA and over a quarter of the global startup investment capital is channelled into the diminutive region that attracts investors and start-up companies from all over the world.

ABC and its partner EDG have joined forces to bring best practices and tools from Silicon Valley to the most innovative and advanced companies in Slovenia.

Companies benefit from programs of developing innovative ideas and formation of innovation teams. Each company receives a thorough individual assessment of the state of innovation in the company. The results then determine key challenges for the company and serve as basis for determining a local team to support further actions.
