Participants can also receive services from our partners as well as access to their network of business contacts. JIC STARCUBE is free of charge.

JIC STARCUBE is held in the South Moravian region in the Czech Republic where high education, top class science and big business players meet. You can find 6 public universities, 26 public research centers and branches of large multinational companies like Honeywell, RedHat, Flextronics, NetSuite, AVG and FEI here. Many of them are located a short walk from JIC offices.

Mentoring is a key service of JIC STARCUBE. Internal consultants with business experience from startups, as well as from the corporate environment, are always available for you.
