BaseLaunch is top European accelerator

Healthcare Accelerator BaseLaunch, which is operated by the location promotion organization BaselArea.swiss, is among the leading accelerators of its kind in Europe, according to a media report. BaseLaunch is the only Swiss Healthcare Accelerator to feature.

“Sifted”, an online magazine supported by the “Financial Times”, has analyzed the leading Healthcare Accelerators in Europe. It aimed to find out which accelerators provide healthcare startups with the best opportunities for development and to find investment.

The list of the best European accelerators that specialize in healthcare is very short, with “Sifted” naming just eleven institutions. BaseLaunch, which is operated by BaselArea.swiss, is the only Swiss institution to feature. According to the article, BaseLaunch is the rarest type of accelerator – it provides investment and support without asking for equity in return. Instead, big industry funding comes from companies like NovartisRocheRoivant SciencesJohnson & JohnsonPfizer and KPMG.

Basel is already world-famous in life sciences, but BaseLaunch is supporting even more startups making exciting developments. It offers them business development and legal services, as well as fully equipped labs. Furthermore, grants are available up to 250,000 Swiss francs per company by the end of the 15-month programme. BaseLaunch looks for companies innovating in the therapeutics space, medtech and diagnostics.

In Germany, the only country in which “Sifted” names several high-ranking healthcare accelerators, there are three institutions listed. Like Switzerland, the other countries featured – Great Britain, Sweden, the Netherlands, Spain, Italy, Denmark and Hungary – have only one accelerator included in the ranking.
