Each year, startup.ch launches the TOP 100 STARTUP AWARD in cooperation with the Handelszeitung and PME Magazine. From over 100.000 young companies, the 100 most innovative and promising Swiss startups are picked by top startup experts.
The seventh edition of the TOP 100 Swiss startup ranking was disclosed on 6 September 2017 in front of 600 participants. The broad spectrum of innovative high-tech startups attracted dozens of investors from abroad, and even from Silivon Valley and China. Switzerland ranks as the most innovative nation according to the Global Innovation Index 2017. The TOP 100 Swiss startups presented give a good flavour as to why this is the case. 36 new entrants made it into this year’s ranking, proving the high dynamics of the Swiss startup ecosystem. Looking back at the previous editions, the 100 experts have proven to be excellent in choosing the upcoming winners. The 2017 ranking winners are Ava, L.E.S.S. and Flyability, startups which are expanding globally and have already raised multi-million financing.
