The cohort of Mass Challenge 2022 is announced

 

Since 2016, MassChallenge Switzerland has been a leader in helping startups across Europe grow their businesses, with 492 alumni raising $ 600 Million in funding. The selected early-stage startups come from 37 countries spanning over 4 continents and have all committed to sustainability. 15% of them are active in Health and Life Sciences. In 2021, the programme accelerated 97 early-stage startups, taking no equity or fees, and connected them to corporate partners and expert mentors.
