Asia Entrepreneurship Training Program 2019
Swiss-Indonesian start-up accelerator with international exchange
The Asia Entrepreneurship Training Program is a start-up program over several months with 5 intensive full-day training sessions. It enables Swiss entrepreneurs to network with the business ecosystem in Indonesia/ASEAN countries and, vice-versa, Indonesian start-ups to gain access to the Swiss start-up ecosystem.
Indonesia in particular, with its young and vibrant population, is undergoing rapid change as the country develops into a digital society. This opens up new, attractive market opportunities for start-ups in the fields of science, technology and services in the commercial and public sectors.
Enter overseas markets with your Swiss start-up and meet matchmaking investors in Jakarta!
The AETP kick-starts Swiss entrepreneurs and incorporated start-ups aiming for an early internationalisation of their venture in South-East Asia. The program is targeted at core founders with an international mindset.
ETH Zurich, in collaboration with the ZHAW School of Management and Law, offers an international assistance program to Swiss start-ups intending to launch a venture in Indonesia (ASEAN). The AETP program includes a free partner search, targeted training, individual team coaching and access to matching investors and incubators in Indonesia.
