Join the pioneering digital health incubator by digital health center bülach and Tenity

Apply now for Batch 1, starting in June, and be one of the first start-ups to join our Digital Health Incubator program. You will benefit from many perks! On this page you will find more information about the incubator program. If you have any questions, please contact us.

Receive crucial knowledge and contacts to successfully build your venture. Join the Digital Health Incubator program for an exceptional network of founders and industry contacts to scale your idea across all areas of Digital Health.

Come build your venture with us, the leading digital health ecosystem dedicated to exceptional founders creating the future of our healthcare system. If you are a passionate and motivated entrepreneur with the drive and ambition to make your start-up a success, we will help you get there faster!

We're confident in our program's success, which is why we don't charge any fees upfront. To demonstrate our commitment and share in the risks and rewards, we've adopted a success-based fee model. This means Tenity will only receive a success fee if you successfully close your first financial round. At that point, we'll receive a fee as an equity stake in your company, which will be either CHF 100K worth of shares or 4% of the total equity, whichever is more advantageous for the start-up. International startups will be reimbursed for travel and accommodation.

The Digital Health Incubator is brought to you by digital health center bülach (dhc) and Tenity. Learn more about dhc and its partners here.

Our founding partner, the Zürcher Kantonalbank (ZKB), is the largest early-stage investor in Switzerland. You will have the chance to connect with the start-up finance team from ZKB during the program.

Pre-seed and seed intensive hands-on incubation program with masterclass weeks spread out over 4 months.
The program starts in June and runs through October 2024. We've extended the deadline to apply: 12th April, 2024.
The program takes place in our brand new workspace at digital health center bülach in Bülach and at Tenity in Zurich.

Focus on Digital Health

You are early-stage, but plan to access the market within the next 3-5 years, ideally you have a prototype or MVP. You do not need to be incorporated before the start of the program.
If you join the program, you have the possibility to incorporate at the digital health center bülach in Bülach (Zurich).

You have a founding team

Building a start-up is hard and we believe that no person can do it by themselves. While you may apply as a solo-founder, you would need to find a co-founder before the program starts, as we prefer teams and not solo founders.
