At the end of each training session, teams will identify milestones they must reach prior to the next session. Coaches and mentors will have regular contact with the teams in order to ensure that they are on track and to provide assistance as required.
For these lessons and workshops at least one member of the founding team is required to be present on location (Zurich or Geneva). SIX assists in defraying travel expenses with a 15’000 CHF reimbursement for each team funded in badges. Funding will only be given if the team reached the identified milestones properly.
The program is intended for international teams/startups with a prototype in FinTech, RegTech, or InsuranceTech. The definition of a prototype can be very broad; most important is that a real problem has been identified and validated, and that the needs of potential customers are addressed. Teams/startups need not be incorporated or complete in order to participate in the program.
