With the GovTech Innovation Exchange, the Swiss Federal Administration is looking for innovative solutions to the current challenges of digital transformation. Various offices of the Federal Administration have submitted a challenge. We are now looking for startups with ideas for solutions to these challenges.

In order for startups and offices of the Federal Administration to jointly find innovative solutions, the Digital Transformation and ICT Steering division (DTI) of the Federal Chancellery will – for the first time in 2023 – conduct an innovation exchange as a pilot test in partnership with Venturelab and digitalswitzerland. In doing so, the Federal Administration is taking up a demand from the Swiss Parliament to examine innovative ideas and potentially implement them.

The GovTech Innovation Exchange offers startups the opportunity for a dialogue with offices of the Federal Administration. It will take place as a one-day event on June 22, 2023. Concrete implementation orders can arise from ideas developed during the exchange.

Until May 7, 2023, interested startups can submit their proposals for solutions to the following challenges (click the links to find a description). Please note that the challenges are formulated in German or French as official languages of the Swiss Federal Administration:

Participation conditions

  1. the startup was founded no more than seven years ago as of June 2023
  2. the founders are still shareholders and actively engaged in their company
  3. the company has at least three employees, including active founders

Interested companies in one or more of the challenges above can apply by registering on this website. Registered companies will then get a form to enter their proposal(s) for these challenges. After checking all proposals handed in by May 7, the Federal Chancellery and the challenging offices of the Federal Administration will select the best proposals to join the GovTech Innovation Exchange event on June 22, 2023.
