Following the successful completion of the second Sparks IPO Academy in May 2023, we are pleased to launch the third round and provide the newly selected companies with another high-level IPO education program. The program offers companies the unique opportunity to exchange ideas with peers and to get in touch with leading experts from the Swiss capital market.
The academy aims to familiarize the participating companies with the possibility of an IPO on the Sparks segment and provide them with the necessary tools to launch an IPO project as a possible next step in their corporate development.
Structure and Program
The training program is structured in three phases and extends over a period of six months. The Academy is set up so that it is compatible with entrepreneurs’ busy schedules.
