The Swiss Startup Challenge supports start-up initiatives by students and employees in developing and implementing their business idea.

We promote students and employees who have developed or further developed their own start-up idea within the framework of special programmes on the topic of entrepreneurship and award the best projects with prize money every year. In addition, the selected projects are supported by coaches in the further development of their project.

«The Swiss Startup Challenge aims to encourage students and employees of the university to become entrepreneurs themselves and to found their own company.»
