CTI Market Entry Camps: Testing the pulse of international markets

You need to know your market before you can gain a foothold in it. The CTI sends innovative start-ups hoping to enter international markets to test the waters in the international hubs of entrepreneurship.

Are you a high-flyer with ambition, hoping to launch your start-up on the international market? Have you recently founded a company and want to keep pace with the times, get inspiration and test your product or business model? The CTI’s internationalisation camps are the perfect opportunity to do just that. Established and fledgling young entrepreneurs can test the international waters in the USA, China, India or the UK. If you have an early stage or stealth-mode start-up, you can try out products and business models at the Market Validation Camp. If you are up among the best of the globally active high-tech start-ups and perhaps have the CTI Start-up label, at the Market Entry Camp you can go in search of clients, partners, investors and well qualified employees.

Our internationalisation programme is run in conjunction with strong partners such as swissnex and local Swiss embassies. You can find out more about the programme and participation criteria from our partners:
