In Switzerland, ten thousand hopeful start-ups fail every year. We commit ourselves personally and on a voluntary basis to each and every one of them so that they can assert themselves on the market – with demonstrable success.
What makes the Startup Academy unique
«In the Startup Academy's support programme, we were able to mirror our business idea, but also discuss problems with others. The exchange and the network helped us to move forward.»
«We benefited a lot from the events and workshops of the Startup Academy support programme. [...] I think it's good that the knowledge transfer in the Startup Academy always takes place exactly when it has to and takes you further.»
«For us, the Startup Academy mentor has played a crucial role as a sparring partner. [...] Especially in the initial phase, it was mentally important to be able to fall back on proven and existing things.»
«Being in touch with our mentor, who always supported us also in building up a network, was the most valuable thing for me. [...] Covid-19 has created an additional momentum at the Startup Academy that should be carried into the coming months and years.»
«The networking events and workshops we attended were very educational and we were able to make great contacts. [...] Our mentor is very supportive and we usually meet once a month - depending on the intensity of the business.»
«Being in the Startup Academy programme has given me a boost to follow through with the startup alongside my day job. [...] A Venture Caffè I had attended was the reason I joined the Startup Academy support programme.»
Anyone with a business idea or who wants to take their newly founded company further can enrol in the Startup Academy’s 24-month guidance programme. It is made up of eight steps and is jointly designed by people in different roles and with different competences. The Startup Academy provides optimal framework conditions and a target-oriented network. The start-up is responsible for the successful completion of the entire process. After successful completion, the founder receives a certificate.
Anyone who has founded a start-up company and successfully completed (at least) one business year can register for the Startup Academy’s continuing support programme, which lasts 36-48 months. The aim here is to turn a start-up into an SME. The support in this scale phase takes place in all relevant subject areas, takes into account the specific needs of the start-ups and consists of workshops and mentoring in the network of a pool of experts. After successful completion, the founder receives a certificate.
