We give you an audience!

If you have an idea for a project in the field of medical diagnostic, take the chance and present your business idea at the Swiss Diagnostics Start-Up Day 2021 to an expert jury and investors and become a part of our diagnostics start-up accelerator. 

Every presented business idea will be rated by our expert jury. The best idea will be awarded the “Swissbiolabs Award 2021”. In addition, you will become part of our network and you can access to free office space, coaching programs, mentoring and networking.

The Start-Up Challenge

The Swissbiolabs Start-Up Challenge has been created to allow entrepreneurs and start-up companies in the field of medical diagnostics to present their business idea to our expert jury. Swissbiolabs wants to give every entrepreneur the chance to pitch their idea and project. In return, you will get support through Swissbiolabs, through our partners or our network. During the challenge, you will be presenting your business idea to our jury, and maybe win the Swissbiolabs Award.

You will also discover many interesting projects and business ideas. You will be able to get to know and talk to many professionals, investors, and entrepreneurs like you. These meetings will take place during time slots allocated for the visits of the tabletop exhibition or the get-together.
