Stift Geras, the Premonstratensian canonical monastery in the Waldviertel, sells its 94% majority shareholding in KBZ GmbH (exactly Kunst- und Bildungszentrum Stift Geras -Veranstaltungs- und Betriebsgesellschaft m.b.H.) to Friends Touristik, the operating company of the tenant of Pernegg Abbey, Klaus Rebernig. The remaining 6% will continue to be owned by Dr. Norbert Frömmer.
The project, in which LRS has been involved operationally and strategically for six years – among other things, Norbert Frömmer was managing director of KBZ from 2015 to 2020 – thus entered its next phase in mid-August. At the same time, further contracts were concluded to enable the long-planned expansion of the Pernegg Fasting Center.

EuropeanBoostUp! Competition – Norbert Frömmer as a member of the Accelerate Jury
The European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT) Manufacturing supports science and research, as well as education. The goal of EIT Manufacturing is to support the creation of 1000 start-ups and will invest more than EUR 325 millions of private-public-partnership funds in the formation of EIT Ventures until 2030.
One of the initiatives to support new business ideas and innovations is the European BoostUp! Competition. The regional final held in Vienna at the end of October was organised by the EIT Manufacturing East which is located there. Start-ups and SMEs from all over Austria and many other Eastern European countries presented their projects in three different categories: Create, Accelerate and Transform.
LRS was also participating – as an experienced expert Norbert Frömmer was asked to join the Accelerate Jury. Together with other top-class managers from the Austrian economy he had the exciting but challenging task to choose the regional winners. The selected business models, innovations and ideas will be introduced to the european audience at the grand european final in Brussels, next to the best projects from the South, North, Central and West regions of Europe.
