Switzerland has attractive framework conditions for a broad-based start-up ecosystem
The existence of a strong start-up ecosystem is of key importance for a country's innovation capability and innovation strength. Start-ups, in particular those which follow on from scientific research, are important drivers of disruptive innovations. As the Confederation's agency for promoting innovation, Innosuisse focuses on supporting start-ups, in order to position Switzerland as an internationally competitive nation for start-ups. Promotion of entrepreneurship and start-ups will be further intensified and appropriately supplemented by Innosuisse. On the one hand the internationalisation of start-ups is to be promoted in order to further facilitate their access to foreign markets from their Swiss home base. On the other hand there is a focus at the national level on the exploitation of synergies with the regional innovation systems (RIS) and their local contact points for businesses.
