Asia Entrepreneurship Training Program (AETP) 2019

Preparing to meet investors and incubators in Indonesia

Leading House Asia:

The Asia Entrepreneurship Training Program (AETP) prepares Swiss technology and science start-ups for fast market entry into diverse South East Asia.  

ETH Zurich - appointed leading house for the Swiss bilateral Science and Technology Cooperation in Asia by mandate of the Swiss State Secretariat for Education, Research and Innovation (SERI) - now offers a targeted accelerator program in collaboration with the ZHAW School of Management and Law and its network partners in Asia. The AETP is the latest addition to the portfolio of strategic initiatives in Switzerland which foster innovation and knowledge transfer with partners in South East Asia.

The AETP is a unique acceleration program to kick-start Swiss entrepreneurs and incorporated start-ups aiming for an early interna­tionalization of their venture in South East Asia. The program is targeted at core founders with an international mindset.

Indonesia, with its young and vibrant population, is experiencing rapid change as it develops into a digital so­ciety. In turn, this offers new, attractive market opportuni­ties for science, technology, and service-based start-ups in both the commercial and public sectors.
