From the lab to the market: deep tech entrepreneurs talk about their journey
Although Switzerland is championed as a world leader at innovation, it is less celebrated for its start-up culture. Does the country have what it takes to produce, finance and nurture the technology of the future? A new documentary explores that question
In his three-part miniseries Start-Up, released on July 16, director Manuel Stagars follows several Switzerland-based entrepreneurs as they attempt to convert their cutting-edge “Deep Tech” innovations from laboratory research into viable Swiss businesses.
Along the journey, Stagars is introduced to concepts such as intelligent drones, Neomorphic chips and 3D silicon printing. He asks the brains behind these projects how they made the leap from science to business, what it takes to be an entrepreneur and what Switzerland does (or doesn’t) do to foster start-ups.
