Call for ideas 2020

The bench2biz workshop 2020 will take place fully online. The call for applications is now open! 

The workshop targets very early to early high-technology entrepreneurial ideas from all fields and from all over Switzerland. Entitling 20 hours spread over two weeks, it prepares participants for the entry into the existing Swiss start-up promotion ecosystem. Individuals or teams can submit an application form with no admission fees. The event is free of charge for all accepted idea teams. The high-technology business idea may or may not have been recently patented, or applicants may have a high-tech business idea but are still wondering about the next steps to take.

At the end of the workshop, participants leave with the business elements of their new venture well structured.
