Building impactful partnerships between start-ups – corporates – academia


Tech4Growth Health is part of the “TFV – Networking Events Series 2021-2024” empowered by Innosuisse and will cover 4 verticals: Health, Industry 4.0, Energy and Finance.


Tech4Growth Health

Tech4Growth Health will be the 1st in this series and will take place from 31 May – 2 July, 2021.

Given the speed of innovation and the shorter technology lifecycles, both large companies and start-ups have a vested interest in partnering. Successful alliances can significantly speed up time to market and scaling up, amongst others. However, there are many reasons why such partnerships could go wrong.

EPFL Innovation Park created the series of 6 hybrid workshops with dozens of company executives as speakers, to talk about their best practices and lessons learned from their own experiences. There will be case studies as well as group discussions. Start-up CEO/CTOs and Corporate innovation managers will have the possibility to work side by side to help each other, to achieve better understanding and to build a powerful business and personal network.

The program consists of 5x online sessions that easily fit into one’s schedule & a final workshop in presence to amplify networking opportunities. Participants who cannot attend workshop days can invite a colleague from his/her team to attend, in order to ensure the continuity and the quality of exchange with other participating companies.
