Swiss Innovation Challenge

The innovation support program with integrated award competition for entrepreneurs.

The Swiss Innovation Challenge is an innovation support program with integrated award competition, in which 25 finalists and one award winner are selected from over 100 innovation projects in three rounds ("pitches"). The participants in the competition are SMEs and start-ups from all over Switzerland. In addition to the award, participants can win special prizes in the fields of "Life Sciences" and "Construction".

The competition lasts eight months. During this time, participants can attend free, user-oriented seminars. In addition, participants have access to mentoring and coaching programs in which they are supported and encouraged with practical knowledge.

In addition to these benefits, the participants and their innovation projects profit from networking events and various publicity measures. The "Award Ceremony" will take place in front of more than 3,000 spectators on the occasion of the "Tag der Wirtschaft" in the St. Jakobshalle Basel.
