The names of the selected startups (projects) arThe majority of teams are from Switzerland, including 16 from Ticino. The main economic sectors include ICT (Information and Communication Technologies) often related to artificial intelligence, followed by consumer products and the medtech, fintech and cleantech sectors. Of those selected, half already boast a prototype, two are already in the market, four already incorporated into corporations, and 11 are in the incubation phase (registered with incubators).
Of these 20 teams, only 10 will then land at the final awards night, scheduled for December 7, 2023, to win one of the many prizes up for grabs. The coaches will be committed to supporting the teams in putting into practice the different tools they will acquire during the five planned workshops and in developing their entrepreneurial project.
