From the lab to the market

The Academia-Industry Training (AIT) is a program that aims to aid researchers-entrepreneurs from Switzerland and Brazil in the development of their projects and studies into the market and industry. The Training Camp offers an opportunity for the applicants to strategize, featuring workshops in business plan writing, market-entry scenarios, funding strategies and pitching classes as well as a thorough understanding of Brazilian and Swiss market opportunities. The program consists of one training week in Brazil and another in Switzerland, with activities of immersion in the environments of innovation and entrepreneurship of both countries.

Our target audience are potential participants both from Brazil and Switzerland.
