About us

The Startup Accelerator is an initiative of the Institute of Innovation and Entrepreneurship (IIE) in the School of Management and Law (SML) at the Zurich University of Applied Science (ZHAW). It is led by Dr. Ben Graziano (Innosuisse Coach for Pitching and Head Trainer for Startup Campus) and Dr. Matthias Filser (Head of the Center for Entrepreneurship at ZHAW and Head of Startup Campus). We are grateful for the support of our partners Z├╝rcher Kantonalbank and Innosuisse (the Swiss innovation agency).
