ETH spin-offs are a stellar example of an effective knowledge transfer between the university and the business sector. Since 1990s, ETH Zurich has been supporting the formation of companies based on its research achievements. The main objective is to transform disruptive innovative research results into marketable products and services for the commercial success and for the benefit of society.

Until now, more than 300 spin-offs were founded, creating over 2500 direct jobs. In 2013 alone, the ETH Spin-offs have collectively produced revenues of 585 million CHF, significantly contributing to the Swiss economy. The survival rate of ETH spin-offs is around 90%, almost double compared to the Swiss start-ups in general, and similar to the renowned institutions like Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) or University of California.
