Platform

Who can participate?

Are you an inventor, a start-up, an SME, a large company, an association, a university? Are you active in Switzerland and in the field of microtechnology ?

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.
