The workshop specifically targets very early to early high-technology entrepreneurial ideas from all fields and from all over Switzerland. Over 20 hours spread out over a bit more than a week,  the workshop participants answer 20 key questions regarding the commercialization of their idea through fast-paced sessions with support from experts, with whom they form a team simulating a start up environment. The workshop provides networking opportunities and prepares participants for the entry into the existing Swiss start-up promotion ecosystem. At the end of the workshop, participants leave with the business elements of their new venture well structured.
