Ten startups have been chosen by a jury of investors as the Swiss National Startup Team for Venture Leaders Medtech 2022.
The designated entrepreneurs fly to Boston for a one-week roadshow in June 2022 to accelerate their expansion into the US market and build an exceptional business network through meetings with top-notch investors and industry leaders in the Boston area. 5 Western Switzerland companies are part of the cohort:
