Pitch Competition

Final pitch competition of the first half of the Academia-Industry Training 9th cycle, where the 20 sciencepreneurs will pitch their startups.

The Academia-Industry Program (AIT) is a Swiss-Brazilian bilateral program organized by Swissnex in collaboration with the University of St. Gallen (HSG), the Brazilian National Council for Scientific and Technological Development (CNPq), and the Ministry of Science, Technology, and Innovation (MCTI).

The initiative supports Brazilian and Swiss researchers to transform their science into market innovations, fostering cooperation in research, innovation, and internationalization, as well as connecting science to business. Over 160 entrepreneurs have already run through the program, which crowns itself with various startup success stories.

The 20 sciencepreneurs from Brazil and Switzerland from the AIT Brazil Camp 2022 will present their innovative solutions and business models enriched by the week’s comprehensive program.

After our jury of industry experts has announced the winner, we will all come together for a happy hour to create new connections and celebrate the week with our partners and guests.
