There are other important entrepreneurial programs that Swiss Start-Up Factory had initiated to achieve their objectives more aggressively such as Hello Vegan, Diplomero, and Diabird. Where vegan was focused on the food industry specifically providing vegans with online food. Diplomero served as an online learning platform while Diabird was an application designed to help people suffering from diabetes. Their recently launched program is First Female Founder Network which was developed to encourage women into becoming entrepreneurs.
The efforts contributed by the company in the business industry has helped it to grow significantly and gain partnerships with other related businesses.
