Archlet: Reducing Time-To-Market Through Advanced Sourcing Analytics

Top 10 Hottest Swiss Startups - 2021

It is often a debate of where Switzerland ranks in the European startup scene. While it is a quiet and shy ecosystem, it is highly innovative and active. As a result, young entrepreneurs are looking to tap Switzerland’s startup ecosystem to set up their new enterprises there. The Alpine nation plans to bolster its appeal as a preferred location for startups through several globally competitive measures. According to a statement from the Swiss government, the European nation’s top-decision making body, the Federal Council, had asked the Federal Department of Economic Affairs, Education and Research (EAER) to examine Switzerland’s startup ecosystem, following which it has found that while this ecosystem is generally in good shape, there is room for improvement in many areas, namely technology transfer, internationalisation, access to skilled labour and financing.

Consequently, the Swiss government is generously helping to make the startup process more streamlined and reduce bureaucracy that continuously blocks so many startups in Europe. This edition of StartupCity magazine brings you the “Top 10 Hottest Swiss Startups in 2021.” In this extensive list, we’ve picked 10 of what we believe are the hottest startups.

To perform this procedure, the company receives a monthly income by the tenants of its real estate assets and, after paying operating expenses, uses the profit to repurchase the D¥NS in the market and burn them.
