We support the most promising EPFL startup projects and help them become the success we know they can be.

If you are an EPFL Master’s student, PhD, Postdoc, or professor with a great idea for a startup, we are here to help you turn that idea into a successful business.

We understand that launching a startup can be a daunting task, but with our coaching and incubation grants, we can guide you through the early stages of your project and provide the support you need to make your business a success.

Depending on your own situation, the incubation offer can take the form of financial assistance, advises on operations and marketing and access to resources as well as the opportunity to connect with a powerful network.
