Idea to Prototype

Once a year, F10 enables up to five teams with great ideas to create prototypes – similar to a one month hackathon. Individuals and employees of corporate members are allowed to apply for the program.


Prototype to Product

Teams with a thrilling prototype can participate in the product development program where they develop a minimal viable product and incorporate their startup. This program can be partially done online/off-site with only certain dates requiring actual on-site presence.


Product to Market

F10 acts as platform for fostering meaningful collaboration between startups and F10 corporate members to produce Proofs of Concept – despite having differing speeds, scales and mentalities.

F10 Location Zurich

F10 offers flexible workspaces and an open environment which allows daily know-how exchange across teams. The “arena” with a stage is the optimal room for events, workshops, presentations, or watching football. The “garage” is mostly used for more private meetings and presentations. Several highback sofas give room for one-to-one’s or can be used to work. Our “harbor”, with it’s movable walls, can be used as meeting or lunch table. All in all, our two big tree tables and other fixed tables give space for up to 40 convenient workplaces. Of course a standing meeting / Ping-Pong and a foosball table are not missing. Because we know that after a hard working day relaxation is important as well, we have a hammock and our fridge is filled with our own locally brewed beer.
