Presented by Zürcher Kantonalbank and Technopark Zurich, the Pionierpreis, rewards a technical project on the verge of market launch that stands out due to its high level of innovation, proximity to the market and social relevance. The winner is awarded CHF 98,696.04 (equal to pi squared 10,000 times) in prize money by Zürcher Kantonalbank. The name of the prize refers to both the pioneering spirit of emerging entrepreneurs and to the mathematical constant pi (3.141592), as a symbol of science and technology.

In addition to the prize money, the award encourages entrepreneurship, brings publicity and serves as a mark of quality.

The Pioneerpreis is one of the most important innovation awards in Switzerland.
