Join us for the final!

InCube Alpine Edition

The Incube Alpine Challenge is now behind us. Stay tuned for the 2021 edition

The organizing team of the #incubealpine2020, as well as the ETH Entrepreneur Club would like to thank its loyal sponsors and partners which made this entire event possible despite the difficult circumstances.

With nearly a third of the globe isolated indoors for the first months of 2020, InCube has moved out of the Cube. This year only,  participants had the opportunity to spend ten days in the beautiful Swiss Alps, combining the best of entrepreneurial thinking and innovation with the beauty of the mountains helping them to reconnect with nature. 

In this exclusive edition of InCube, our customary class cubes were replaced with alpine huts and urban cityscapes with remote mountain retreats. Over the course of five days, #incubealpine2020 has continued to push participants to ideate solutions and create a prototype for real world challenges!

Read our last blogpost to know more about what happened during these 10 days. 

From Problem to Prototype in Five Days.

Bored of sitting around at home and wasting your time? How about spending 9 days in the Swiss Alps, working with like-minded peers on an innovative solution to an entrepreneurial challenge instead?

InCube Alpine Edition is an international competition, where students from diverse backgrounds spend five days in a mountain hut in Crans-Montana to come up with innovative solutions to an entrepreneurial challenge. Over the course of the event, the participants develop a deep understanding of the challenges, ideate solutions and create a prototype. At the final event, each team pitches their solution in front of a live audience and jury where only one wins the grand prize.

During ten days, all expenses (travel costs, etc) are covered by the ETH Entrepreneur Club. Check out our FAQ for more information.
