 Venture Leaders Biotech Program 2024 for biotech startups

Application Deadline: February 26, 2024.

Every year, ten tech startups are chosen to join the Swiss National Startup Team as Venture Leaders and represent Swiss startup excellence on the international stage. As participants in a roadshow in Boston, the entrepreneurs have the opportunity to boost the growth of their ventures and profit from meetings with investors and industry experts. 

The Venture Leaders Biotech program offers entrepreneurs a way to accelerate the growth curve of their startups by taking them to one of the most significant hubs of technological innovation in the life sciences: Boston.

The program, which is free of charge, is a unique opportunity for top Swiss-based biotech startups to assert their presence on the international stage while expanding their U.S. network. For one week in May, the Venture Leaders will have the opportunity to meet with investors and profit from the experience and insights of industry experts, VCs, and peers.


  • Eligible participants include the founding and managing members of biotech-based Swiss startups, who are poised to expand their businesses in the US with the support of international investors, all while actively contributing to the development of a global biotech startup ecosystem.
