Coaching is a key element of the support provided as part of the Swiss Startup Challenge. Each team is given two hours of coaching. The sessions can focus on establishing a base-line position, on your business plan, on functional aspects (e.g. marketing, financing, production) or on considerations of motivation and behaviour.

The choice of coaches is made in consultation with the program management.




Develop your own business idea with the 7-key model and an online business plan with the interactive business plan generator.
