Start-up exchange programme with Israel

Israel is famously known as the Startup Nation. This unique and fast-paced startup ecosystem consists of almost 7000 startups, which is the highest number of startups per capita in the world. The Israeli digital health sector alone raised over USD 1 billion in 2021, making it one of the top three sectors in Israeli high tech. Are you a Swiss health tech or life sciences startup and interested in the Israeli Startup Nation? Then this startup exchange programme might be just the right fit.

The Swiss-Israel Lean Launchpad programme offers you a close-up of the inner workings of the Israeli startup nation. This 10-week hybrid startup exchange programme is your access to the lively startup culture in Israel. The programme is tailor-made for the needs of each participating startup. The seminars offered in this programme give you first-hand insight into the toolbox of Israeli entrepreneurs, including mastering your storytelling, pitching and more. More than that, the personal mentoring sessions offer your startup the opportunity to connect with Israeli partners relevant to your business, like health care organisations, venture capital, researches and many more.
