The Brazilian and Swiss researchers selected for the Sixth Academia-Industry Training (AIT) will attend their first training camp week, which will be held in São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro.

The key objective of this program is to connect those researchers with applicable projects to market opportunities and induce an entrepreneurial spirit, taking their research from the labs to the market. This program gives a strong introduction to entrepreneurship featuring workshops in business plan writing, market-entry scenarios, funding strategy and pitching classes as well as a deep understanding of the Brazilian market.

Those goals will be achieved by visiting key institutions in Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo, participating in conferences as well as focusing on networking events to maximize contact between Swiss and Brazilian players.

Our talented and promising Swiss and Brazilian scientists will pitch the application of their research in 5 minutes in front of a broad audience. The selected startups cover various industries such as AgriTech, IT, Health, Foodtech, MedTech and consist of Master, Ph.D. and PostDoc students. Meet the promising entrepreneurs who are going to pitch!

We look forward to seeing you there
