AREA OF ACTIVITY «VENTURE KICK»

Science Entrepreneurship – since 2007


The Venture Kick programme is the first of its kind in Switzerland: the pre-seed fund is designed to serve as a launch pad to enable young scientists to turn their research results into products, companies and jobs more quickly, in greater numbers and more successfully than in the past. The draft proposal for this support initiative based around the theme of «science to market» emerged in close cooperation with researchers involved in successful entrepreneurial activities with their spin-off projects. Venture Kick today is a collective initiative of GGebert Rüf Stiftung, Ernst Göhner Stiftung, Fondation Lombard Odier, Debiopharm Group, Fondation Pro Techno, Rising Tide Foundation, Engagement Migros, European Space Agency BIC, Swisscom, André Hoffmann, Hansjörg Wyss and Martin Haefner. Moreover, since 2016 the Venture Kick initiative has been part of digitalswitzerland.
