Although it may not be the first country you think of when it comes to Startups, Switzerland is more than delicious chocolate and ski resorts. As the most innovative country in the world according to the Global Innovation Index 2015, Switzerland has a vibrant startup scene.

Apart from its first unicorn, MindMaze, many other startups benefit from easy setup, fast investment process and free office space in several incubators in Zurich and other cities of this country. We believe they deserve to be discovered, and who knows, maybe one day become the champions of the Swiss economy!

Why these companies?

These companies displayed exceptional performance on important success factors – strength of the team, size of the opportunity, competitive environment, etc. – while not being on the radar of investors and media websites.

Most competitions are biased towards companies that reached the largest number of milestones. While being quite common, we tried to avoid this bias, and reward companies on abnormal performance in peer groups based on sector, size and development stage.
