Bringing together experts, companies and entrepreneurs helps nurture innovation and accelerate business growth. Our accelerators in three key industries – therapeutics and biotech, healthcare, and industrial transformation – connect entrepreneurs and innovators with partners, collaborators and funding sources in the Basel Area.
Supporting Therapeutic Innovation
BaseLaunch incubates and accelerates early stage therapeutics ventures. Since early 2018, BaseLaunch has backed nine ventures. They have collectively raised over CHF 160 million in financing, to date. Each venture is financed with up to 500,000 CHF, and BaseLaunch provides hands on support building the companies from scratch to a point where they can raise financing and/or entering strategic collaborations.
Supporting Healthcare Innovation
With a focus on shaping the future of health, the DayOne Accelerator supports promising new digital health ventures that combine groundbreaking technologies, healthcare expertise and entrepreneurial spirit. Selected venture teams receive coaching from experts and immersion in a dynamic ecosystem that includes potential customers and patients, as well as access to funding and innovation space.
Supporting Industrial Transformation
The i4Challenge is a program for SMEs, startups and Industry 4.0 initiatives and projects focused on innovative solutions, new approaches and next-generation products or services for industrial transformation. The Basel Area offers a supportive ecosystem for tackling the transition of the manufacturing industry toward customer centric smart technologies and sustainable production methods.
