Scaling Up: Using Growth Marketing and PR to Scale Your Startup


About the Program

The inaugural SIT StartGarden Program, in close collaboration with Schaffhausen Institute of Technology (SIT) and international experts, focuses on growth marketing and includes CHF 100,000 investment for all participating startups.

Our first program, ‘Scaling Up: Using Growth Marketing and PR to Scale Your Startup,’ connects your startup with industry experts who can help shape and build a ‘growth engine’ for your business.

The first program is available to Swiss startups only. However, if you’re an international company you can still apply for consideration in future programs.
