A business idea must be achievable to be achieved.
The interface between research and industry provides fertile ground for new businesses, and many start-up ideas go all the way to the market. We play an active role in the local start-up organisation Wädenswil (grow).
The I2B Programme at LSFM and the Entrepreneurship@ZHAW programme act as first point of contact and advice for ZHAW employees and students interested in setting up their own companies.
Innovation to Business
Within the framework of the “Innovation to Business” (in German) programme (I2B), promising innovations are selected from ZHAW research and accompanied as they progress to the spin-off stage.
