The Swiss Eco­nom­ic Award is the most impor­tant young entre­pre­neur prize in Switzer­land. The cov­et­ed award hon­ours out­stand­ing entre­pre­neur­ial achieve­ments in the three cat­e­gories of ser­vices, deeptech/life sci­ence and production/trade & indus­try. In a mul­ti-stage judg­ing process, around 15 com­pa­nies are select­ed from the appli­cants for the expert vis­it. After vis­it­ing these com­pa­nies, three can­di­dates per cat­e­go­ry are select­ed by the experts for the final round. The final­ists then appear at the Swiss Eco­nom­ic Forum before rep­re­sen­ta­tives of the Swiss busi­ness, sci­en­tif­ic and polit­i­cal communities.
