Circularity Gap Report Switzerland

Switzerland is a trendsetter when it comes to environmental action: it has decarbonised its electricity sector and is among the world’s best recyclers of municipal solid waste. It also boasts ambitious climate targets, while the canton of Zurich has enshrined the circular economy in its constitution.

However, the country’s consumption is too high—surpassing what our planet can sustain. By transitioning to a circular economy, Switzerland can cut its material use by 33% and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 43%, shaping a truly sustainable system. The Circularity Gap Report Switzerland lights the way.

Swiss Angel Investors Handbook

The first comprehensive 101 of best practices for new angel investors in the Swiss startup ecosystem. Written by Thomas Dübendorfer, published by SICTIC and free to download! If you want to invest into a Swiss technology startup and you don’t know where to start, then this book is just perfect for you!

Ecosystem Innovation

In this book, Kickstart experts talk about the central aspects of ecosystem innovation. Here, we draw significantly from the experiences, best practices and failures of the Kickstart Program. However, you will also find articles beyond Kickstart inspired by corporates, startups, consultants and academia. Some articles are personal accounts, others are rigorously researched pieces.
