Two of the world’s premiere research parks have recently joined forces to offer the Soft Landing Program, which provides a two-way business exchange between the United States and Switzerland.
The Y-Parc technology park of Switzerland’s Greater Geneva Berne region and Philadelphia’s own University City Science Center are offering this program to their incubator residents, providing workspace accommodations and support services to companies pursuing growth opportunity in the reciprocal region.
This partnership is kicking off in conjunction with the annual BIO Convention being held in Philadelphia, by inviting an amazing lineup of disruptive biomedical technology startups. A cohort of Swiss startup teams hosted by the swissnex Boston will compete with Philadelphia-based and Swiss biomedical entrepreneurs for the title of International Biomedical Pitch Champion. The event is free of charge and will end with a networking session.
Program details will follow shortly.
