Meet INNO LAB, Finalist of the Slovenian Start:up Of the Year 2022

Day 13. June 2022 posted Nina Skok

Getting children excited about physics, maths, computing and more is no easy task, but science experiments will help them grow up to be great researchers. And how do we raise a new generation of scientists? THIS is how! 

Meet Innobox, a box of experiments in 3 fun version that takes children and their parents on a science-based journey of talent discovery, independence and critical thinking


Each Inobox contains experiments from differet fields of science (physics, mathematics, computing, chemistry and more), and learn about the achievements of Slovenian scientists, researchers and experts. And don't worry, the experiments are safe!

The INNO LAB story was started by Teja Bajt, the founder of Innobox. She is a molecular and cell biologist by education and heart. Teja's greatest joy is to pass on her passion for science to children. 

The INNO LAB team has also presented itself to the wider Slovenian public on the popular Štartaj Slovenija 2021 show, and now their idea is ready for foreign markets, the Italian one to be exact. In 2020, INNO LAB generated €30,000 in revenue, which jumped to over €100,000 in 2021. In 2021, they also applied for and successfully obtained a P2 start-up grant, which allowed them to develop faster.
