Creating a successful business does not only require a brilliant idea: it is also essential to have a multidisciplinary team of capable people, a vision and a solid business model.

Kick-off 2018 edition

6 group workshops covering essential topics

Our workshops are built on a fundamental principle: hands-on experience is essential for lasting learning. Each workshop is conducted by experts in the field, who will enable you to gain theoretical and practical skills that you can apply immediately to your project.

Our learning philosophy is based on mutual collaboration and interaction. Workshops are designed to facilitate discussion, exchange of ideas, and the building of meaningful and fruitful relationships between participants and speakers.

The acceleration program includes several events that stimulate learning and connection among the various program stakeholders.

Kick-off Meeting

Marks the beginning of the acceleration program. It is an opportunity to meet the participants, coaches and staff and to find out all the details of the program.

Mid-Term Event

Gives teams a first opportunity to put into practice what they have learned, presenting their project with a pitch in front of the coaches and other participants.

Community Event

Series of events aimed at fostering connections among members of participating teams. At a dedicated event, alumni from previous editions are also involved.

Sponsor Night

This is a unique opportunity to connect with representatives of the prestigious companies, academic and institutional entities that support the program.

Award Ceremony

Embodies the culmination of the program. The ten finalists present their projects in front of a large, diverse audience.

The value of our program goes beyond the months of active participation. Throughout the journey, teams build meaningful relationships and become part of a community that continues to grow over time and offers constant opportunities for post-program engagement.

From day one, program participants have the opportunity to connect with a diverse network of entrepreneurs, experts and professionals. This opens the door to collaborations, partnerships and growth opportunities that include the chance to participate in the Swiss Economic Award or MassChallenge Switzerland.

After the accelerator journey, we stay in touch with participating teams, who become part of the dynamic Boldbrain alumni community. Our alumni are involved in numerous events (such as the Canton Startup Day, Scouting for Investors and events organized by SICTIC, the largest angel investor club in Switzerland) and supported in the development of their project outside the program. We also help our alumni gain visibility in the media and share their success stories.
