In its first edition in 2016, 6 proof-of-concepts were successfully initiated, over 4 million CHF raised by the participating startups and +120 publications covered the program, including Financial Times, Bloomberg and Forbes.

Kickstart Accelerator will select a shortlist of up to 30 startups who will participate in one of the programme’s verticals; Food, FinTech, Smart Cities and Robotics & Intelligent Systems. In order to tap into the unexplored innovation potential, Kickstart Accelerator has entered into a partnership with BaseLaunch (initiated and operated by BaselArea.swiss ) to offer a healthcare-specific vertical in the life sciences hotspot Basel.
