Ideal infrastructure at Switzerland Innovation Park
"If they time things well, startups can get to work on their very first day at the park", states Stephan Emmerth, Business Development Senior Manager at BaseLaunch. The accelerator program by BaselArea.swiss is specifically tailored to the needs of healthcare startups. It offers carefully selected ventures non-dilutive financial support, knowledge from highly experienced advisors, as well as access to its Healthcare Partners and the ideal infrastructure at Switzerland Innovation Park Basel Area.
In order to match the actual requirements of startup companies, the first residents at Switzerland Innovation Park Basel Area were closely involved when the labs were originally equipped. Every workplace consists of an office desk, printer and internet included, as well as access to the shared space and a single workstation at the laboratory. Most devices are easily available, while the more coveted ones can be reserved via the park’s internal smartphone app. Working together so closely brings about exchange among the residents. This may include sharing recent findings or contacts, but also practical proceedings such as joint waste disposal or purchase of consumables.
