Twenty-eight startups selected for the Innosuisse Scale up Coaching

The first phase of the Innosuisse Scale Up coaching program 2023 will support 28 startups to help them unlock their growth potential. The startups are developing solutions to address medical, engineering and environmental challenges, leveraging vast types of technology including artificial intelligence, sensors and more.

The Innosuisse selection committee for the Scale Up Coaching program has selected 28 candidates out of 40 applicants to participate in phase 1 of the program. Over the next eight to ten weeks, the cohort will work with a team of coaches to conduct an in-depth analysis of their growth strategy to identify specific and systemic problems to unlock their full growth potential over the next two years. At the program’s end, participants will present their growth strategy to a committee at a special Scale-up Award meeting. This presentation is the key to qualifying for phase 2.
