Phase 1

In this first phase of Project Conception and Inception:

  • the potential entrepreneur’s idea/project and its level of maturity are evaluated
  • the potential entrepreneur’s profile is prepared, identifying the level of training reached and his/her knowledge of management
  • possible guidelines are given for setting up a Business Model and Business Plan
  • a list is drawn up of the further information needed
  • the project is evaluated to decide whether it can be submitted to "Innosuisse" (Swiss Innovation Agency), for examination in order to obtain professional coaching and the Swiss quality award for Start-ups.

This phase, which generally takes place in the Promotion Center itself, is free and allows the Center to evaluate the feasibility of a certain number of ideas and projects, and thus whether to proceed or not to PHASE 2.
