Our advice: as an SME take advantage of free support from an Innosuisse mentor to develop your innovative project up to and including submission of your funding application.
The Innosuisse mentors provide just the kind of support needed by SMEs developing innovative products, processes or services. Innovation mentors take the time to properly understand the ideas, requirements and situation of your company, provide support with advice during negotiations with project partners and offer highly effective support to put innovative projects on the right track and maximise their chance of success.
More specifically, they support your SME by carrying out a comprehensive feasibility analysis of your concept, help you to prepare a funding application or to review one previously rejected. The mentor provides support during project development up to and including submission of your funding application while Innosuisse pays the costs of this service.
Public and non-profit organisations can also apply for support from a mentor if the organisation has fewer than 250 FTEs.
SMEs, private or public organisations with less than 250 FTEs and based in Switzerland are eligible for the mentoring service. 330 SMEs, municipalities and associations benefited from this support in 2019.
>> Apply as well for support to develop your innovation project.
