February 20, 2023 | Boston & New York

The founders of 11 top Swiss startups selected by Swissnex and Innosuisse, the Swiss Innovation Agency, are embarking on an entrepreneurial journey exploring the global innovation hubs of the US Northeast. By taking part in the Innosuisse Internationalization Camps run by Swissnex in Boston and New York, they will gain the contacts and information they need to validate their products in the US market.

The camps begin with the two-week introductory module “Breaking Into the US Market” from March 6-17, 2023. During these online sessions, participants will hear from local experts on pitching, fundraising, business development, and hiring in the US; as well as legal topics, such as IP, reimbursement, and taxation; and sector-specific topics, like FDA product approval.

In the months following their completion of the module, participants will travel to the US East Coast to meet with experts, investors, and potential partners in Boston and New York.

The companies in the spring 2023 introductory module represent a broad range of products and services, from bone and skin regeneration technologies to alternative food sources and artificial intelligence.
