SIA Switzerland Finalists

We are happy to announce the 11 SIA Switzerland Finalists who will be incubated at Impact Hub Geneva.

They will receive a rich coaching and mentorship program, a series of business workshops, talks and panels, a variety of networking opportunities and collaborations and the opportunity to work from an inspiring co-working environment.

This year’s applicant pool is diverse and passionate, with creative socially-driven business ideas that aim to make positive change.
The criteria for selecting the finalists were mainly these three: Social Impact, Innovation and Feasibility.

Congratulations to the finalists and to all applicants. All the projects presented were extremely interesting and we look forward to seeing them all turn into reality.

Finally, thank you to our expert jury members for taking the time and giving your valuable input!

We look forward to guiding all the finalists on their projects during the summer and keeping you updated with their successes, experiences and challenges.

The B.ottle Project

Are you shocked by images of plastic on beaches, in water and nature? If we don’t start looking for ecological and competitive alternatives, plastic production will continue to increase and even double in the next 20 years with disastrous consequences. The objective of our project is therefore to explore the feasibility of a biodegradable alternative to reduce the negative impact of single-use plastic bottles.
