Spirecut reaches the second round of the Swiss Innovation Challenge

The Swiss Innovation Challenge is an innovation promotion program with a competition in which 25 finalists and one winner (“Award Winner”) are chosen from over 100 innovation projects in three qualifying rounds (“pitches”).

The participants in the competition are SMEs and start-ups from all over Switzerland. In addition to the award, participants can receive special prizes in the areas of “Life Sciences” and “Construction” categories.

The competition lasts eight months. During this time, participants can take part in free, user-oriented seminars. In addition, the participants have access to mentoring and coaching programs in which they are supported and encouraged with practical knowledge. In addition to these advantages, the participants and their innovation projects benefit from networking events and various publicity measures.

We are excited to announce that we reached the second pitch round that will take place in September 2022, that could hopefully lead us to the finale!

55th “Journées romandes des arts et métiers”

Each year, Schweizerischer Gewerbeverband sgv organizes the “Journées romandes des arts et métiers” (Annual day of SMEs in French speaking Switzerland) which takes place in Champéry (Valais canton). On June 23rd & 24th, Spirecut joined the round table to discuss the following subject: “Why is the international market important for Swiss start-ups?”.


The conference enabled local actors to discuss political, economic, and social issues. The Swiss Union of SMEs (Usam) represents more than 230 associations and 500,000 SMEs (99.8% of companies in Switzerland). It is committed to creating an economic and political environment favouring SMEs.

Spirecut is on the MedTech podium of TOP 100 Swiss StartUps 2022

Since 2011, VentureLab has organized the TOP 100 Swiss Startup Award.

The public nominates ten Swiss startups, each less than five years old, with the most significant commercial potential. 

The 100 most innovative and promising Swiss startups are picked by a panel of 100 leading investors and industry experts. Each expert chose ten startups, with first-place receiving ten points and 10th place receiving one point. 

All these individual rankings are compiled to generate the final TOP 100 Swiss Startup Award ranking, which therefore recognizes the startups that have most impressed all 100 jury members.

TOP 100 Swiss Startup Public Voting is underway, and Spirecut is currently one of the start-ups leading in MedTech.
