Internationalisation camps: Test the pulse of international markets

You need to know your market before you can gain a foothold in it. Innosuisse sends innovative start-ups hoping to enter international markets to test the waters in the international hubs of entrepreneurship.

Do you want to launch your start-up on international markets? Do you have the internationalisation strategy you need to do it? 

Then the Market Validation or Market Entry Camps are just the thing for you. 

Innosuisse offers the Market Validation Camp for established and fledging young entrepreneurs alike: You can test the international waters and, if you have an early-stage or stealth-mode start-up, try out products and business models in the USA, Brazil, China, India and the United Kingdom (UK). 

If you are up among the best of the globally active high-tech start-ups and are currently receiving start-up coaching from Innosuisse, at the Market Entry Camp you can go in search of clients, partners, investors and well-qualified employees.

Who can apply?

Young entrepreneurs must fulfil the following conditions:

  • Your application for coaching has been approved.
  • You want to enter international markets to increase added value in Switzerland.
  • The quality of your internationalisation strategy and the potential to open up the respective market and create value are high.
