At this event, we will show how important Tech for Impact innovations are and what potential they have. And most importantly, how industry players can be pioneers in this context by supporting and collaborating with impact tech startups for innovation at scale, to meet the SDGs.

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) provide an excellent framework for new business opportunities. If anything, this has become even more evident during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Forward-thinking industry players have the potential to become game changers in this context.

The Swiss impact tech sector is on the rise, and it has great potential. Key industry players are urgently needed as partners for a growing Tech for Impact ecosystem in Switzerland and beyond. 

With inspiring keynote speakers from ETH, EPFL, Buhler Group, Good Tech Lab and Katapult Accelerator we draw on experiences from pioneers in the European impact tech sector and Swiss experts to accelerate collaboration between impact startups and industry players in Switzerland.

We are proud to organize Switzerland’s first Tech for Impact Day on September 15th 2020 in Zurich. The event is commissioned by Innosuisse and supported by the Department for Economic Affairs, Office for Economy and Labour, Canton of Zurich.

**COVID-19: Given the current situation, please note that space is limited and priority will be given according to relevance. Certain keynotes will be held virtually. We follow the official guidelines and regulations of the Swiss government to enable a safe execution of the event.**
