Program Highlights



Costs and Commitment


Our program is free of charge, offering unparalleled access to resources, mentorship, and investor networks. However, a success fee of 2% on capital raised within the first 18 months post-program (starting from CHF 150k raised) applies, capped at CHF 15k. This model reflects our commitment to your tangible success beyond the program duration. Should a startup withdraw without significant reason, a commitment fee of CHF 3,000 is required to underscore the value and investment in each participating team.


Why FF+ Acceleration Program?


Organized by Female Founders Switzerland, an initiative by STARTUP CAMPUS and Impact Hub Zurich, the FF+ Acceleration Program is not just an accelerator—it’s a movement. A movement towards creating a more inclusive, equitable entrepreneurial ecosystem where female founders are not just participating but thriving.
