Recognition and support for Swiss startups

Eldico, Vay and eCollect have each received an award for their standing pitches and solutions. While Eldico looks forward to weeks of collaborating with experts to scale its solution, Vay and eCollect have been recognised by a wide audience across Europe.

Eldico is the newest startup in the Swiss Entrepreneurs Foundation’s UpScaler programme, supporting companies to keep a sizeable growth rhythm. ELDICO’s dedicated electron diffractometer is a disruptive instrumentation concept that will revolutionise the analysis of nano-sized solid compounds. Organic chemists will be among the first users to learn about and appreciate this fascinating technology's advantages. The company will ship the first unit this summer. Joining the Upscaler programme will enable the startup to build a scalable organisation with a robust supply chain to cope with a global client community's needs.
