Thanks to its unique expertise and technological competences, Switzerland has an opportunity to foster innovative entrepreneurial solutions with a sustainable impact in a comprehensive sense, i. e., in economic, environment, and societal terms.

The Switzerland Innovation Tech4Impact initiative supports projects that address society's most pressing issues, with a focus on the United Nations' 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. In its third year, six teams working on various sustainable development goals were awarded a one-year grant of CHF 85,000 each to further develop their ideas at one of the six Switzerland Innovation Parks.

At the Demo Day, the six awarded teams will take the stage to give you a first-hand and exclusive presentation on their projects and the progress achieved.

You are kindly invited to join us for this event.
