Accelerating the startups!

Boost is an initiative by the ETH Entrepreneur Club and ETH juniors aimed at boosting startups get incorporated. After a selection process, 10 ETH-affiliated startups match with experienced mentors at the Kickoff Event, followed by an intense period of workshops and counselling. Eventually, startups perfect their pitches and business cases to take the stage in a public pitching competition at the Final Event in front of a live audience and a jury of veterans. Based on the jury vote, the big winner startup gets 25'000 CHF for its incorporation! An audience vote further decides which startup gets an additional prize of 5'000 CHF! Finally, top 3 startups get to join Startup Campus incubator program, while the top 5 get access to diverse Startup Campus resources!

2023 Winners: qCella

QCella impregnates natural fibers with copper and use them to develop heating mats with superior properties compared to commercially available heating wires. The mats have the proper electrical resistance across the entire structure so that they heat homogeneously when connected to a power source (e.g., a battery). The thinness and smoothness of the heating mats allow for more energy-efficient heating by eliminating the need for a heat-losing upholstery layer between mat and human body. The heating mats can be cut into any shape and size and are easily and cost-effectively integrated into the final heated product.
