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 100 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.
