Swiss Bluetec Bridge
The Swiss Bluetec Bridge strives to accelerate sustainable access to water and sanitation for local residents in rural areas and in small towns in developing and emerging economies by providing them with advanced technology and innovation.
The programme was launched in November 2012 and offers financing and encouragement to Swiss-based start-ups – such as ECyTech (see picture) -, SMEs and social entrepreneurs at the early stage of their journeys. At the end of the process, entrepreneurs who have succeeded in the field get recognized and promoted through the Swiss Bluetec Bridge network and enter new markets. Moreover, trainings on proposal writing are organized for the participants.
