Can I join the medtech accelerator if I am located in the canton of Jura but not in the Switzerland Innovation Park?
Yes, this is possible. However, as we want to have our startups as close as possible to the core of our ecosystem, we will make sure that we can strongly interact with your project, during and after the program, to accelerate it properly.
