The prize, which comes with a SFr75,000 ($72,700) bonus, recognises each year the most innovative SMEs in Switzerland. It is given out by the Swiss Economic Forum, which is celebrating its tenth anniversary.

The judges chose Anteis, Digitec and Götti from nine finalists, after initially evaluating more than 130 entries.

Anteis specialises in injectable beauty and medical treatments, Digitec offers low price electrical products through an online shop, while Götti has developed its own successful range of spectacles and sunglasses.

The award is split into three categories: high-tech/biotechnology, services and manufacturing/production. It has been a feature of the Swiss Economic Forum since 2002.
