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.

Access and registration to the ideation platform

How to submit your idea:

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
  • Participate in community events
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!

  • Open up to the ecosystem
  • Attract partners via the platform and your network
  • 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
