Initial Coaching: challenging and optimising the business model

It is crucial to be aware of the feasibility and the market potential of your business idea. You have to critically challenge and review your business model and refine your business plan at every step in your start-up journey. In the Initial Coaching programme you will be supported by an experienced coach to ask the right questions and define key milestones to reach the next phase in the development of your start-up.

Initial Coaching is the entry point to the Innosuisse Start-up Coaching at any start-up stage. The programme is limited to maximum of six months and gives you the opportunity to expose possible blind spots in your business idea and define an action plan for upcoming challenges. It also prepares you for potential follow-up coaching at Innosuisse.
