We couldn’t be happier and prouder to announce that Bionomous has obtained the FIT Seed loan of CHF 100’000!
The Foundation for Technological Innovation (FIT) encourages entrepreneurship, supports innovation and boosts the local economy by providing appropriate financial assistance. The FIT grants help projects that possess an innovative or technological character and are set up in collaboration with or emanate from an institute or university based in the French-speaking part of Switzerland. In order to complete all of the criteria, the projects are also expected to have high chances of success in creating or developing a company.
The FIT has been helping startups since 1994 and it has provided 47 grants to promising projects and 228 loans to 191 innovative companies, with 73% of them still active! Furthermore, in 2019 there were 20 startups supported by the FIT on the very top of the ranking Top 100 of the best swiss startups.
Having the support of the FIT for our next steps towards market entry really encourages us!!
