We select 20 startups per year at ETH Zürich, EPFL and the University of St. Gallen. To qualify, you need to have at least one co-founder who's enrolled in the university as a bachelor, master, MBA or PhD student, and you must be pre-incorporation, meaning that you didn't incorporate a company yet. In terms of where you should stand, it could be anywhere between having just an idea, to already having a prototype and some early customer validation.
You can fill in the form, and we'll get back to you within 1 to 2 weeks, which will either be a call with one of our Partners, or a negative feedback if for some reason we feel like your startup is really out of scope. Generally, our process consists in 3 meetings until a selection decision. You won't receive any confirmation email upon submitting the form, but we will have received it.
You need to have at least one co-founder who's currently enrolled as a bachelor, master, MBA or PhD on that campus.
You will be our main touch point for your startup. Please have a co-founder who is a student from the campus as our main touch point. We only have fields for 3 co-founders below, so if you're 4+ co-founders, simply share the profiles of 3 of them.
Your answers will be read by our Partners to determine if your startup is on scope.
If you are pre-website, leave the field empty.
