The basic requirement for the Swiss Startup Challenge is the participation in one of the following programmes on entrepreneurship:

Within the framework of these programmes, a pre-selection for the Swiss Startup Challenge is made at the end of each programme. The selected projects can benefit from coaching and have the chance to win the prize money.

The competition is open for projects of all fields and disciplines within the mentioned programs. Both projects that are only at the stage of an idea and projects that are already being implemented are eligible.

In addition to the usual performance criteria, the main focus is on feasibility and the will to implement. The selected teams commit themselves to participate in the award ceremony at the StartUpForum Aargau.
