And once you're sure that you want to expand to Japan, we'll be with you every step of the way.

What we offer

Innosuisse chose Swissnex as internationalization partner for its innovation-driven startups. We support innovative Swiss startups on their expansion to Japan and help with evaluation & market entry. The kick-start ‘Market Discovery’ is by advising startups through digital channels about specific market potential in Japan.

Our tailor-made camps include:

  • Market Validation

    Get mentored in adapting your business model for Japan, re-strategize your competitive intelligence / sales / pricing / partner / hiring / distribution strategies, and leave with the ability to run your own activities in Japan. The Camp has a duration of one month with a stipend of CHF 3,000.

  • Market Entry

    If you are ready to enter the Japanese market, we hack your growth with exposure to key international startup platforms.
