TWELVE START-UPS ARE STILL IN THE RUNNING FOR THE ZKB PIONIERPREIS TECHNOPARK
46 start-ups have applied for this year’s ZKB Pionierpreis Technopark, which will be awarded at Technopark Zurich on May 31, 2023 – more than twice as many as last year. Twelve of them are still on the shortlist for the CHF 100,000 award.
Since last year, the Pionierpreis, one of the most important innovation prizes for startups in Switzerland, has had a new look with an English-language website. This has certainly contributed to the fact that the current applications are split equally between German-speaking and French-speaking Switzerland. Two-thirds of the start-ups in the running are spin-offs from ETH and EPFL. The spectrum of industries represented ranges from chemistry to medtech and pharma to sustainability issues.
