About the Innovation Monitor

The Innovation Monitor is a continuously updated database, in use since 2014 and online since 2018, providing information on innovative Swiss startups, projects and companies in the environment and energy business sectors. The core focuses on active startups and project ideas that might become startups, and will expand to innovative SME and innovation projects in larger companies.

We aim to bring visibility and accessibility about these projects and startups to a wider audience, especially investors, collaboration partners, researchers, and startup ecosystem supporters.

The database is managed by a team of researchers from the ZHAW School of Management and Law, and experts from the startup development company, eqlosion, and supported by the SFOE and Innosuisse.
