The Stage For Innovation

We all know the story of how Isaac Newton came to understand the force of gravity under an apple tree. Luckily enough, there won’t be any apples falling on people’s heads on the fourth floor, but there will be thousands of ideas flying back and forth.

The fourth floor in Gravitat – BTV House of Innovation is where ideas can take flight. For one evening, a workshop or a few months.

It gives you space to develop, sow and grow outstanding ideas.
