Tech Park Basel in 2021
In 2021, the Tech Park Basel was able to celebrate its tenth anniversary. Various activities marked the anniversary year, starting with a media conference in January and a symbolic handover of the keys from former Member of the Executive Council Christoph Brutschin to his successor Kaspar Sutter.
Over the past decade, the Tech Park Basel has responded to strong demand with further expansion and extension projects culminating in the successful establishment of a dynamic ecosystem for technology-oriented start-ups with considerable growth potential. Among other achievements, this has led to Basel ranking fourth among all Swiss cantons in terms of investment in start-ups in 2021 (according to the Swiss Venture Capital Report 2022).
Tech Park Basel currently offers an inspiring environment to 28 companies who have produced an impressive output: The number of jobs within these companies has increased tenfold, from 31 to 310 in the last ten years. Furthermore, despite the Covid-19 pandemic, various tenants were able to secure additional funding and achieve substantial growth: In total, tenants raised just under CHF 587 million in 2021 in published financing rounds, grants, awards and IPOs.
Ending its anniversary year on a high note, the Tech Park Basel celebrated a very popular “Open Day” in autumn: The event drew a festive crowd of more than 250 visitors and guests.
