Swiss-Israel Startup Exchange Program

Israel is famously known as the Start-up Nation. This unique and fast-paced start-up ecosystem consists of almost 7000 start-ups, which is the highest number of start-ups per capita in the world. The Israeli digital health sector alone raised over USD 1 billion in 2021, making it one of the top three sectors in Israeli high tech.
Are you a Swiss health tech or life sciences startup and interested in the Israeli Startup Nation? Then this startup exchange program might be just the right fit.

Thank you for your interest in the start-up exchange programme with Israel. Due to the current security situation in Israel, all measures related to this programme are temporarily suspended until further notice.

Thank you very much for your understanding!
