ETH Zurich wishes to maintain and expand the Pioneer Fellowship, which is largely funded by donations. This programme gives ambitious young scientists the opportunity to commercialise the results of their research, so that innovative products or services can be brought to market as rapidly as possible for the benefit of society.
Your support enables
- ambitious young researchers to develop entrepreneurial skills
- 10 to 15 Pioneer Fellows a year to receive starting capital of CHF 150,000, as well as coaching and access to infrastructure
- ETH to further expand the programme, allowing even more young entrepreneurs to benefit
"Supporting budding entrepreneurs at ETH Zurich and seeing how they develop highly innovative products means a lot to me. And I look forward to the ideas and successes of many more passionate entrepreneurs in the future."Gerhard E. Schmid, Dipl. El.-Ing. ETH
