Founders who are awarded the UZH Startup Label are officially allowed to communicate as UZH Startup and benefit from the recognition by the University of Zurich.
Founders who receive the UZH Startup Label become part of the UZH Startup Community. They benefit from a presence on the UZH Innovation Hub website and are featured with an exclusive venture story. Furthermore, they receive media attention through the UZH Innovation Hub channels.
Startup Label holders are also invited to join the UZH Alumni Entrepreneurs Chapter.
The UZH Startup Label is an agreement between UZH and the spin-off/startup, for the use of the UZH Startup Label logo on its website, as well as company presentations. It shows the affiliation to UZH and increases the credibility of the spin-off/startup towards customers and investors.
Since 1999, more than 100 spin-offs that develop or bring to market new products based on UZH technologies have been founded at the University of Zurich. Many other startups have been founded since then by students, alumni and other members of the University of Zurich. An overview can be found inUZH Startup stories.
