The Start-up Promotion Center assists people who intend to turn an innovative idea or project into an entrepreneurial activity, helping them:

  • to focus on the idea and turn it into a project;  
  • to ask the right and relevant questions about its feasibility;
  • to extend and analyze the range of possible answers in greater depth;
  • by following their activity right through the set-up and development and consolidation phases of the project.

The following people can benefit from the services offered by the Start-up Promotion Center:

  • Swiss and foreign graduates holding a Bachelor’s, Master’s or PhD degree from USI or SUPSI;
