We are happy and proud to announce that b-rayZ has been selected among the finalists for the Switzerland Innovation Tech4Impact Initiative. We are looking forward to present our business case in the upcoming pitch session.
As one of the worldwide leading innovation countries, Switzerland has an opportunity to make its unique technological expertise and innovation competences available to society by supporting entrepreneurial solutions that have the potential to achieve sustainable impact in a comprehensive sense, i.e. in economic, environmental and societal terms.
The objective of the “Switzerland Innovation Tech4Impact Initiative” (SI Tech4Impact) is to facilitate the realization of innovation projects that tackle society’s most pressing environmental and societal challenges, focusing on selected themes of the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
To achieve this ambition, SI Tech4Impact promotes the development of ground-breaking projects that focus on real market applications by supporting projects research groups of Swiss universities as well as startups and SMEs collaborating with research partners. This initiative is led by Switzerland Innovation conjointly with EPFL Tech4Impact and collaboratio helvetica. The companies supporting SI Tech4Impact as innovation partners are the following: ABB, Credit Suisse, Die Mobiliar, Economiesuisse, Interpharma, Schindler, Swiss Re Foundation, Swisscom, UBS, Zurich.
Through the network of the Switzerland Innovation Parks, the partners of this initiative receive direct added value and visibility through the supported projects, the annual demonstration event (Demo day) and through preferential access to the ecosystem of the network.
Switzerland Innovation is a network of six innovation parks across Switzerland based on a joint initiative of public institutions, academia, and the private sector with a statutory mandate from the Swiss government. Together with its partners, Switzerland Innovation forms an ecosystem accelerating the transformation of research results into marketable products and services.
