About ESA BIC Switzerland

The ESA Business Incubation Centre Switzerland is a nationwide program launched in 2016 and is managed by ETH Zurich, in collaboration with IFJ and AP Swiss.

Our office is located centrally in Zurich.

Together with our partner network, ESA BIC Switzerland is the program for entrepreneurs with some space connection. This means either exploiting a space technology in a non-space related business on Earth or using a technology from Earth for an application related to Space.
