ETH Innovation & Entrepreneurship Lab – Deep Tech Accelerator
The ETH’s Deep Tech Accelerator encourages and challenges bright, talented entrepreneurs and support them along their path to success creating their own start-up.
The ieLab tailors its program with education (CAS), events and training for young entrepreneurs and researchers to transfer scientific research results carried out at ETH Zurich to business and society in order to fully exploit their commercial potential.
By bringing together young startups with seasoned successful entrepreneurs, experts from the business world and alliance partners from industry, the ieLab creates a unique platform for networking and information exchange.
The ieLab cultivates a climate of innovation, exploration and translation. The young entrepreneurs are supervised, supported, encouraged and challenged by experienced coaches – who are successful serial entrepreneurs themselves – on their way to realizing their entrepreneurial goals.
In 2019, ETH entrepreneurs started 30 new companies; 10 of these came from the Pioneer Fellowship program. Currently, the ETH ieLab supports 15 Pioneer Fellowship projects and several ETH spin-offs rent office and lab space.
