About Swiss Startup Factory
In 2014, the Swiss Startup Factory (SSUF) was established to offer a three-month program that provides early-stage startups with mentoring, coaching, office space, servicing, financing and access to a large investor and entrepreneurial network. SSUF differs from most incubators because it is private and independent, i.e., it does not operate as part of another political organization. The co-founders of the company also invest substantial funds in SSUF which gives them a major incentive to ensure the success of all individuals involved in the organization.
In July 2016, SSUF allied with BV4, a company that estimates the values of inventions, ideas, and assorted intellectual property. According to the Swiss Startup Factory’s website, intellectual property ranks highest among the greatest assets of startups.
