We believe in nurturing the next generation of startups and our program is our contribution towards securing that future.

The results speak for themselves: 38% of the students who attended our sessions have already started envisioning themselves as startup founders, and 29% have set their sights on working for a startup in the future.

Making theory tangible through practical experience

Our workshop brings students closer to the theory of entrepreneurship and the startup world in Switzerland.
Presented by a founder from our network, the content is complemented with their personal entrepreneurial journey.

By sharing their personal story, the speaker inspires students to believe in their own potential and encourages them
to pursue their entrepreneurial dreams.

The Swiss Startup Association hand-picks experienced and trustworthy Swiss startup founders to lead the lectures.

Our guest speakers are chosen not only for their expertise but also based on the region where the school is located.
