UNIL HEC Accelerator: embark on the adventure of entrepreneurship!


CALL FOR PROJECTS - Are you a student, doctoral student, post-doctoral fellow at UNIL, or a member of the ALUMNIL network? Do you want to launch a new project on the market? Join the next edition of the UNIL HEC Accelerator program which will start in August and end in January 2020. Deadline for submission of applications: June 30th 2019, 6pm.


The UNIL HEC Accelerator is a program of the University of Lausanne and the Faculty of HEC that aims to encourage an entrepreneurial spirit among the entire community of UNIL students, doctoral candidates, and post-doctoral fellows, regardless of the faculty from which they come. The program also extends to UNIL graduates who are members of the ALUMNIL network.

For this new edition, thanks to the support of the HEC Foundation, the Faculty of HEC, UNIL and UChange, up to 7 projects can be chosen.

Projects that focus on different aspects of sustainability are particularly welcome.


What is this acceleration agenda?

Over a period of 5 months, the selected teams will learn how to transform their project into a company, while already confronting the realities of the market. Participants benefit from training, coaching, and mentoring, as well as from a line of financial credit and an allocated workspace on campus. This program is interested in any type of project, without specifically targeting technological innovation.

Attendance at the various training courses and individual weekly coaching is mandatory during the 5 months of the program.

Why apply?

As future entrepreneurs, participating in the UNIL HEC Accelerator gives you a head start thanks to high-level coaching that has already proven its worth with previous editions! Put all the chances on your side!
