Kickstart Accelerator is one of the Europe’s largest multi-corporate, zero equity accelerators with the goal of placing the Swiss innovation ecosystem on the global map of entrepreneurship. For 11 weeks it brings 30 of the most promising international startups and intrapreneurial teams to Zurich, where they are provided with coworking space, direct access to over 15 leading corporate partners, top-level mentors and experts and a chance to win prize money. 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.

Kickstart Accelerator is an initiative by digitalswitzerland, a cross-industry association, which aims at making Switzerland a leading digital innovation hub in Europe. The program is operated by Impact Hub Zürich, which is part of the largest network of entrepreneurship and innovation centers across the globe.
