Innovation is crucial to Switzerland’s prosperity, with a zest for science and entrepreneurship playing a key role. It’s only when research results or good ideas find their way into the market that new jobs are created, or solutions are developed for social and technological progress.

UBS has a long tradition of cooperation with research, targeted promotion of training and further education, and support for entrepreneurship in Switzerland.

That’s why we are proud to partner with EPFL to organize Investor Day.

Our ambition is to make the day as dynamic as possible! So we have included a number of different areas, such as the Startup and Accelerator Village. A place where you can meet startups and accelerators, as well as some of the most exciting prototypes to come out of the EPFL laboratories.
