CTI Market Entry Program

Get connected. Innovate globally.

Are you a Swiss technology startup developing niche products and willing to go beyond borders? Then you need to think of a global market right from the beginning.

The Commission for Technology and Innovation (CTI) represents an official Federal Agency of the Swiss Confederation and is responsible for encouraging innovation through the provision of findings, consulting and networks.

CTI Market Entry Program is a joint initiative between CTI and several swissnex nodes in the world’s most innovative hubs.

The startups participating in the CTI Market Entry Program have access to a wide portfolio of tailor-made support services in the following fields:

  • Fact finding
  • Market validation
  • Market entry
  • Networking
