Startups supported by the jFund
Entrepreneurship and innovation are very important to us and is a big part of ETH juniors. For this reason we support startups and innovative projects around ETH.
As a student consultancy, we have been connecting ETH with industry for many years. Parallel to our expertise in project management, the number of our former members, also known as ETH seniors, is growing. Many of these ETH seniors founded their own startup after their time with ETH juniors. Since innovation and entrepreneurship are extremely close to our hearts and we want to promote that, the jFund was created in 2014. With the help of this fund we are able to support start-ups of current and former ETH juniors members with seed capital and at the same time accelerate their development.
The fund is supported by ETH juniors, companies, former members and friends of the association.
The jFund Committee is a group that decides on the granting of seed capital for startups and accompanies and supports the young entrepreneurs during the initial phase of their startup. The jFund Committee is composed of the following members:
Head of Business Excellence RES, Sulzer Management AG
Co-Founder & Chairman
Dr. Silvio Bonaccio
Head of ETH Transfer
Nicolas Sommer & Cyriak Heierli
Presidium ETH juniors
CIO & Co-Founder
