While most of regular incubators offer a 3-month program, we think a longer duration is needed in order to make a difference in a company’s life. This is why we offer a 12-month program. Moreover, FUSION takes NO UPFRONT EQUITY STAKE in your company since we are performance based. In terms of funding, Polytech Ventures will syndicate investment on a case by case. Being in Switzerland gives you access to the local market. Working with our coporate members gives you access to potential clients or distributors. Mentors will help refine your strategy, provide the insights to ensure your products meet market needs, assist in developing a viable operating plan and make introductions to their network to give you a headstart. FUSION has over 650 square metres of premium city centre space, largely open plan but with plenty of break-out areas for brainstorming, chill out zones, recreational areas – all with state-of-art IT infrastructure.
