A workshop for young and aspiring entrepreneurs

Bench2Biz (B2B) is a consortium of NCCRs that aims to promote technology transfer and a culture of entrepreneurship amongst young researchers. B2B organizes a yearly workshop where aspiring entrepreneurs can bring forward their business idea and get informed feedback from technology transfer experts. Supported by a team of academics and industry specialists, the participants will work to bring their initial idea to a true concept stage.

The next (virtual) workshop will take place in November 2021. B2B is funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation, and actively supported by the Federal Institute for Intellectual Property (IPI) and Innosuisse. The NCCR Microbiomes is thrilled to have joined B2B and its NCCR partners Chemical Biology,  NCCR TransCureNCCR PlanetSNCCR RNA&Disease, NCCR BioinspiredNCCR KidneyNCCR SpinNCCR Dependable Ubiquitous Automation.
