Dear aspiring entrepreneur,

a consortium of National Centers of Competence in Research (NCCRs, research instruments by the SNSF) with the support of the Swiss Federal Institute of Intellectual Property invites you to apply with your business idea to the 2021 bench2biz workshop for aspiring entrepreneurs taking place online over 5 afternoons from November 15th to 29th, 2021.


The workshop targets very early to early high-technology entrepreneurial ideas from all fields and prepares for the entry into the existing Swiss start-up promotion ecosystem.


If you are wondering if your invention/research is marketable.

If you need to get a clear picture on how to pursue your business idea.

If you want to get guidance specifically adapted to your project.

Then, bench2biz is the right workshop for you!


During the workshop participants answer 20 key questions regarding the commercialisation of their idea through fast-paced sessions with support from experts, with whom they form a team simulating a start-up environment.


Deadline for application: October 17, 2021

Participation is free of charge.
