Business Mind

by Babylon Sciences 

For entrepreneurs by entrepreneurs


Behind Business Mind 

Business mind exists because entrepreneurship is at the heart of our culture and is set deep within our roots as all founders of Babylon Sciences are active serial entrepreneurs. This quarterly entrepreneurial competition is designed for anyone with a great idea in relation with 7 fields:  

  • Nutrition
  • Cosmetics
  • Pet Healthcare
  • Medical/Healthcare
  • Ecology
  • Retail and consumer services

If you have a great/innovative idea in any of these fields share it with us to try and win the winners prize money. Why are we doing this? 

Because as of February 2020 the Swiss Federal Court cancelled the 25% tobacco tax on CBD flowers. Therefore, we as entrepreneurs decided to give 15% straight back to our clients by lowering the prices on all our dried flowers and pre rolled joints and give the remaining 10% to innovative minds that we believe will make the world a better place. 

How this works


  • One grand winner per quarter
  • 2 Runner-ups
  • 3 Applicants will be selected to pitch their idea
  • Applications open until end of September
  • Create your account and start uploading/updating the information about your project at the pace that you like
