Who can participate?
If yes, then you can submit your ideas on our platform. You can also show your interest in participating in the ideas of others (no comma here) through participatory financing.
Every 6 months, our committee selects the ideas that will receive (future simple, not future perfect) a minimum of CHF 5,000.00 of participatory funding. They will then get CHF 20,000.00 of additional funding for a feasibility study that will last 6 months.
1. Join the ecosystem
Become a member of the ecosystem and participate in the creation of a competitive Swiss microtechnology industry!
- Become active on the platform
- Follow the training courses offered and access the tools
2. Post or follow ideas
Join the platform and promote your microtechnology innovation ideas to attract partners and experts, or become a partner in a proposed idea yourself!
- Accelerate your innovation culture
3. Participate in funding
Receive funding to validate the idea until proof of concept (6 months).
- the ecosystem participates in the financing
- Participatory funding is proof of market interest in the idea
- A minimum of 5kCHF raised is required to validate the idea
