2024 >>venture>> Finalists

We're delighted to announce that the finalists for our annual startup competition have been selected! After weeks of rigorous evaluation, our jurors have chosen 60 promising startups across a variety of industries and sectors. We're thrilled by the amount and quality of the submissions received and grateful to every entrepreneur who took part in this year’s edition.

With 329 applications received, the task was challenging for our jurors. Each startup was evaluated on its innovation, potential impact on the industry and society as a whole, and other grading criteria. We're incredibly proud of the commitment and effort our jurors put every year into this process, and we're confident that the selected finalists represent some of the most groundbreaking and promising startups in Switzerland.

This year marks the introduction of the Social & Environmental Impact vertical, drawing an even higher number of applicants compared to the NPO track last year, which was dedicated to nonprofit organizations. This vertical is an essential addition to our competition and provides much-needed support and recognition to supporting social entrepreneurs, environmental advocates, and nonprofits working towards positive societal change.

Without further ado, please meet the 2024 >>venture>> Finalists!

We extend our congratulations to all finalists and thank all the participants for their hard work and dedication. Your passion and commitment to innovation and entrepreneurship are truly inspiring, and we look forward to seeing your businesses grow and flourish in the years ahead.
