With its combined leadership in education and innovation, Switzerland offers a unique environment to accelerate the next generation of EdTech startups that will bring global impact. Located at the heart of the thriving startup community on the EPFL campus, the selected startups will benefit from collision and connection through a unique package comprising a structured acceleration program to boost their development.

EdTech participants can expect to obtain an initial travel and accommodation stipend of CHF 3’000, followed by a further stipend of CHF 7’000. Two startups each can obtain CHF 10’000 and CHF 25’000 based on a competitive pitch at the end of the 11 weeks.

Coworking space is provided in the EdTech Collider on the EPFL campus in Lausanne, giving access to participants to a wide network of experts, investors, mentors and business partners.

Applications are welcome from EdTech startups based in Europe or within Switzerland, which are less than two years old and have funding up to USD 500’000.

The Edtech vertical is optimised for maximum two participants per startup. At a minimum, participating teams need to send at least one founder to Switzerland to spend the 11 weeks on the ground.
