Ticino region: ideal habitat for startups

Boldbrain

Ticino is a relatively small, human-scale region, where the distances between enterprises and institutions are short and where contacts between companies and academic institutions, are facilitated by proximity. It is the ideal place where to grow your startup. Ticino is a Canton that looks at innovation and strongly supports entrepreneurship and valid ideas. Setting up a company in Canton Ticino allow access to the benefits provided by the law for economic innovation (LInn), entering the network of contacts of the RIS (Regional Innovation System), and easily access to the facilities provided for startups.

In this context, where the person is the center of the project, Boldbrain is one of the few programs aimed at startups in the embryo phase, the only one in Ticino and the only one that is not aimed at a specific sector. Boldbrain provides useful tools and basic skills to start your journey and tackle the next stages. Boldbrain also provides access to a wide network of investors thanks to the Lugano Venture Day, dedicated in particular to those who participated in the program of the previous year.
