Call for champion ideas 2019

The bench2biz workshop 2019 will take place in Zurich and is launching a call for applications to champion ideas. The workshop targets very early to early high-technology entrepreneurial ideas from all fields and from all over Switzerland. Over a condensed two-and-a-half-day, the workshop 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 workshop 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.

Champion participants benefit from fast-paced sessions, guidance specifically adapted to their project, support from recognized industry experts from various backgrounds and networking opportunities. At the end of the workshop, participants leave with the business elements of their new venture well structured.

The event is organized by the bench2biz consortium, composed of NCCR Chemical Biology, NCCR TransCure, NCCR PlanetS and NCCR RNA & Disease) and powered by Neworks Pre-Seed Workshop.

The event is generously supported by Innosuisse and IPI.
