The Swiss Economic Forum has been honoring the exceptional achievements of up-and-coming companies at a national level since 1999. Convinced by the potential of their younger-generation founders and managers, SEF.Alumni seeks to leverage their immense entrepreneurial experience for the long term. Founded in 2014, the exclusive network fosters cross-sectoral experience sharing and new business opportunities. The membership is open to the winners and finalists of the Swiss Economic Award as well as to companies awarded by SEF4KMU. The network currently counts 80 members.
Swiss Economic Forum AG’s SEF4KMU growth initiative promotes Swiss entrepreneurship. It offers practically oriented support to companies that have a solid market presence. Companies that have undergone the certified qualification process can be awarded the “SEF.High-Potential SME” label and thus gain access to the partners’ growth modules.
The aim of the Swiss Startup Days (SUD) event is to promote investments in Swiss start-ups. Regular features of SUD are inspiring keynote speeches, panel discussions, interactive masterclasses and a pitching battle in which start-ups can showcase their ideas to potential investors. Start-ups can also expand their personal network and exchange business ideas in 1:1 meetings.
The aim of Digital Day is to make digitalisation a tangible experience for the Swiss population, while stimulating in-depth debate on this topic and highlighting the opportunities and challenges associated with it. More than 150 free activities in various areas of digitalisation take place at over 12 locations throughout Switzerland.
The aim of the Female Innovation Forum (FIF) is to promote young female entrepreneurs, make female innovation visible and create an innovation ecosystem for female entrepreneurship. The FIF also confers the Female Innovator of the Year award.
