CTI Entrepreneurship – created for company founders.
It is, above all, new companies that implement and market innovations. Startups are the engine of the economy. That is why one of the tasks of the Commission for Technology and Innovation (CTI), Switzerland’s innovation promotion agency, is committed to providing targeted support for these companies. CTI Entrepreneurship, which offers specialist training for the next generation of scientists and entrepreneurs, was developed for exactly this purpose.
CTI Entrepreneurship (formerly Venturelab) is a training programme for the founders of knowledge- and technology-based companies that has been running successfully since 2003. Its objectives are as follows:
- To promote an environment in which knowledge- and technology-based startups can develop successfully
- To create an entrepreneur-friendly environment in Swiss universities
- To run practical and supportive training modules for members of universities and startup entrepreneurs
CTI Entrepreneurship – led by company founders.
Around 120 trainers, themselves with practical experience in business, provide training and information on entrepreneurship for some 3,200 participants every year, on over 80 courses at 18 universities. The courses are carried out on behalf of the CTI throughout Switzerland by approved consortia consisting of universities, science parks and private providers.
