Milestone Review


In phase 2 of the Scale-up Coaching programme the voucher is split into multiple checkpoints to support the process and ensure progress. The checkpoints are defined by milestones set by Innosuisse and start-ups have to report on 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 scale-up.

Evaluation and decision

You will be invited to a Milestone Review meeting to present the progress of your scale-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 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 was not approved. 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 must be sent to Innosuisse by email (
