Silicon Vilstal is a participatory initiative and virtual innovation lab in Vilstal, a rural region of Lower Bavaria, founded in early 2016. The initiative is focused on innovation, entrepreneurship and creativity.
The basic idea of Silicon Vilstal is: We show ourselves and others what the Vilstal already has to offer, and we learn together what it can achieve in the “digital” age. The creative exchange between the rural region, international experts, start-ups and initiatives from all over Germany gives Silicon Vilstal its unique flavor.
Silicon Vilstal organizes a large annual participatory festival with lectures, workshops, exhibitions, real world experiments, pop-up makerspaces etc. Further activities include rural mobility challenges and “Bauer sucht Startup” (Farmers seek startups), a rural participatory startup incubation program. People, institutions, municipalities and companies all support the initiative. Silicon Vilstal is a program partner of Munich Creative Business Week and was selected to represent Bavaria at “Innovation made in Germany“ / TheARTS+
