Swiss Challenge Entrepreneurs' Programme

The FHNW University of Applied Sciences and Arts Northwestern Switzerland promotes entrepreneurial and sustainable activities among SMEs, students and other university members.

Participants in the Swiss Challenge competitions receive support at every stage in the life of their company:

  • Promoting startups and supporting sustainable projects during the founding phase
  • Promoting innovation and internationalisation during the growth phase
  • Providing advice when handing over to the next owner

The four “mentoring” challenges – the Swiss Startup Challenge, Swiss Innovation Challenge, Swiss Next Challenge and Swiss Student Sustainability Challenge – are free to enter and offer a comprehensive range of support:

  • Workshops, seminars and networking events
  • Tailored support with coaching sessions and mentoring
  • Networking events and various online tools

The competitions are funded by sponsors and work with a broad network of partner organisations.
