Milestone Review


The Core Coaching voucher is split in multiple checkpoints to support the process and to ensure progress. The checkpoints are defined by milestones set by Innosuisse and start-ups have to report their progress at milestone reviews within a given time frame. Milestones are specific to each business case and in the interests of the successful development of the start-up.

Evaluation and decision

You will be invited to a Milestone Review meeting to present the progress of your start-up.

The start-up is set specific milestones in achieving the evaluation criteria and the meeting is held to discuss the progress made in meeting them under certain conditions.

  • Positive evaluation
    Innosuisse will inform you of the review conclusion at the meeting and by email. An additional voucher budget will be released (if required) and the next steps and new milestones defined.
  • Negative evaluation
    Innosuisse will inform you of the negative decision by email and by letter. The communication will explain why the review resulted in approval not being given. A negative decision closes the coaching voucher.

This process usually takes about two to three weeks.

Milestone reports have to be submitted in the Innosuisse online tool and a milestone review request has to be sent to Innosuisse by email (
