bench2biz Workshop 2023

Academic or specialist Seminar
02.11.2023 15:00 - 09.11.2023 17:30
+ Mixed

A workshop for aspiring entrepreneurs in science and technology.

The workshop will lead you through a significant thickening of your business idea. As such, it requires about 20 hours of presence at the workshop and 5-20 hours of homework between the workshop sessions.

The bench2biz workshop serves as a friendly validation of business ideas and is not a pitch or competition. Also, the workshop is dependent on the team experts, who join pro bono, and business ideas need to be at the right stage for participation for the workshop's format to optimally work.

The bench2biz workshop 2023 is a joint initiative of the following National Centers of Competence in Research (NCCRs) AntiResist, Automation, Bio-Inspired Materials, Microbiomes, MSE, RNA & Disease, PlanetS and SPIN, which are research instruments of the Swiss National Science Foundation. The workshop is generously supported by the Swiss Institute of Intellectual Property.
