We offer you a chance to become the founder of an ambitious startup, with a higher chance of success thanks to our venture studio support.
We are launching this entrepreneur competition as we kick off a new batch of candidate selection for entry into the WeBuild program. This competition will provide an opportunity for aspiring entrepreneurs to showcase their innovative ideas and earn a spot in our program, where they will receive valuable resources, mentorship, and support to help bring their ideas to life.
We welcome entrepreneurs who have ideas at various stages of development, as long as they have not yet incorporated their business. However, we do require that entrepreneurs have a strong understanding of their business model and industry. We believe that by offering guidance and support at this crucial stage, we can help our partners achieve their goals and take their venture to the next level.
Our studio specializes in fintech, insurtech, real estate, and mobility, but we're also open to exploring new sectors. Our two primary targets are B2C millennials and B2B SMEs. Our goal is to create tailored solutions that meet the unique needs of these two distinct groups in Swtzerland.
Our studio is committed to fostering innovation in Switzerland, and as such, we prioritize Swiss market adaptation as a key factor in our selection process. If selected, we will also incorporate your company in Switzerland to further support its growth and development.
Participation in The Swiss Entrepreneur Contest by WeBuild is completely free.
For this batch, we will be selecting a single winning case for this competition. Our team will carefully evaluate all submissions and select the idea that demonstrates the most potential for success and impact. We encourage all participants to submit their best ideas and wish them the best of luck in this exciting competition.
We offer a funding ranging from CHF 500,000 to CHF 1,000,000 for the startup, depending on its specific needs. The funding will be a combination of cash and kind, tailored to provide the necessary resources to support the growth and development of the venture.
Whether you are alone with your project or a group of people, you are all welcome to participate in The Swiss Entrepreneur Contest by WeBuild!

Only our jury and our innovation consulting firm Fusion Partners will access it.
The jury is composed of 3 Swiss personalities:

This program is designed to help you turn the idea into a successful startup. As a winning participant, you will receive a salary while you work on developing your project.
