Celebrate SEF’s 20th anniversary and meet leading Swiss entrepreneurs in Interlaken

To celebrate its 20th anniversary, the Swiss Economic Forum (SEF) is launching a summer camp for the next generation of entrepreneurs. We invite 25 bold young individuals to take on a very special kind of challenge over the three and a half days of the summer camp. Immerse yourself in the fascinating world of entrepreneurship with peers from all over Switzerland and exchange ideas with successful start-ups and stars of the Swiss business world. Instead of drawing up business plans or break-even calculations, the camp will focus on real-life insights and hands-on learning. In diverse sessions, the aim is to awaken the next generation’s business spirit and introduce the principles of an entrepreneurial mindset.


The summer camp will be conducted in several languages. Alongside your mother tongue, participants should be able to communicate in English at a basic level. The Swiss Economic Forum will bear all costs for travel, accommodation and food/drink.


Register now and apply on the website by 16 March 2018 for a spot in the summer camp. SEF management will examine all applications before making a choice. Important selection criteria are a balanced mix of participants and motivations. Successful applicants will be individually informed by mid-March 2018.
