The Startup Camp Program
The 3-4-week swissnexSF Startup Camp in February and August consists of :
Mondays: Office Hours
Weekly peer learning sessions with the swissnex team to exchange solutions and discuss progress.
Wednesdays: Fireside Chats
We invite successful entrepreneurs to share their knowledge and journeys. You ask questions and meet.
Experts share knowledge in US law, fundraising, marketing, growth, pitching, strategy and more. Depends on startup camp dates.
Opportunities to practice and gain feedback on your pitch to the community, investors, entrepreneurs and the public at pitching sessions and demo days.
Meetups, client meetings and lots of time to work on your project at our workspace at Pier17.
As we’re a public funded startup camp, we take no equity (if you come through Innosuisse, we can even pay a small stipend towards your costs).
