StartCup Ticino

The aim of this initiative is to recognize the best business ideas and the most innovative projects conceived over the last five years that have given rise to new businesses in Italian-speaking Switzerland or are about to do so.

The StartCup Ticino is an initiative run by the Start-up Promotion Centre (CP Start-up USI-SUPSI) promoted by Sistema Regionale d’Innovazione with the support of EFG.



Istituto Svizzero di Roma

We have been partnering with the Istituto Svizzero di Roma (ISR) since 2005. Swiss academics and artists have played a role in representing the ISR ever since its foundation. In 2005, the institute - together with the branch in Milan – became the reference for Switzerland’s art and science in Italy.

The ISR promotes a dialogue and exchanges between the cultural institutions operating in Italy and actively participates in the network of the several international institutes and academies in Rome.

EFG is the main sponsor of EFG Sailing Arabia - The Tour, the Gulf region’s only long distance offshore sailing event, launched in 2011 with the aim of promoting the Middle East as an international sailing race destination. Thanks to perfect winter climate conditions in the Middle East, it has quickly become a fixture on the international circuit.
