About Launch

Celebrating the ETH Entrepreneur Club 10-year anniversary, Launch was created in 2021 to embrace all three of the club's foundational pillars: inspire, educate, accelerate in a single flagship event. After its big success Launch will be back in 2022 for a full day event! Through Launch, it is our vision to do away with exclusivity and make entrepreneurial resources accessible. On October 14th, 2022 at StageOne Oerlikon, the vibrant entrepreneurial ecosystem of ETH and beyond will be on full display to an audience of 2000 and put in reach for those that dare to dream, and do it. This is Zurich's biggest event that brings students, startups, professors, and professionals together under one roof to engage in an inter-generational and multidisciplinary debate on what entrepreneurship is about. Specifically, we try to exhibit the opportunities around us every day for participants to bring their ideas to orbit.

Responsible Entrepreneurship

In light of present and future challenges such as climate change, biodiversity loss and socioeconomic inequality, it is paramount for our projects and collective endeavors to consider social, environmental and economic aspects from the beginning, not just as an afterthought. Launch is about helping students “bring their idea to orbit”, but it is essential to do so diligently and question how we get there. We need to make sure the world we are leaving behind is a place we want to come back to. Launch will host the Better Future Space, a space for participants to interact with key actors in the field. Additionally, keynotes and workshops will be held on related topics for participants to fully dive into learning how entrepreneurship can be used to promote lasting positive change.
