SIT StartGarden Program

Application Deadline: June 14th

Announcing the StartGarden Accelerator: Calling All Startups

We’re excited to launch the inaugural program of the SIT StarGarden Accelerator. In close collaboration with SIT and international experts, our first program focuses on growth marketing and includes CHF 100,000 investment for all participating startups.  

Our first program is Scaling Up: Using Growth Marketing and PR to Scale Your Startup. During this month-long program you’ll learn from international experts on how to build a ‘growth engine’ for your startup.

Applications for this program are due by June 14th, 2021 (apply now), with the program starting June 22nd, 2021. 

As a participant, you’ll receive CHF 100.000 investment into your company in exchange for 5% equity. There is no cost to attend the program and the entire investment can be used to help fuel your next stage of growth.

The one-month program will be conducted virtually with an average weekly commitment of 5 hours, where you’ll meet with mentors from our network, SIT partners, scientists and other global business experts. You’ll also join weekly group sessions where external experts will provide unique industry knowledge, available to answer questions on their area of expertise. 

We’ll help you set goals for your business and establish the accountability needed to get you to those goals. The SIT StartGarden program is highly bespoke and caters to each startup’s unique needs.  

In addition to helping companies better leverage growth marketing, we focus on accelerating your business in the areas of product validation while also strengthening business skills across your team. This type of development can take upwards of 5-7 years, but with access to SIT StartGarden resources and networking, we aim to help you produce the same results in less than a year.
