Bench2Biz (B2B) is a consortium of Swiss National Centres of Competence in Research (NCCR) funded by SNSF. The consortium is open for all NCCRs to join.
Innosuisse (former CTI) and the Federal Institute for Intellectual Property (IPI) actively support this initiative for aspiring entrepreneurs. The partnership is open upon call launched by the network, to other NCCR members wishing to implement and support a culture of entrepreneurship amongst their research members. If you are interested to join as a partner in the future, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The consortium organizes a yearly workshop to support aspiring entrepreneurs to:
- determine rapidly the commercial value of their idea or intervention
- assess the idea/invention’s team fortitude
- organize the idea to move ahead from a dream stage to a concept stage.
The B2B annual event is powered by the Pre-Seed workshop, a workshop created by Mark Wilson in 2004 in Rochester New York, USA as a Neworks trademark product. It is now being held about ten times a year in various Host City locations throughout the northeast of the US. In Switzerland, the workshop is organized on a annual basis by Bench2Biz.
