2021 InCube Challenge

The InCube challenge is a competition for students organized by ETH Entrepreneur Club.

Zurich, October 11th – 15th

In 2019, we sponsored our first cube in Singapore. This year, Hilti has partnered with ETH again for the 2021 InCube Challenge as a flagship sponsor. The event takes place between October 11th and 15th in several cities around the world. Our Hilti-sponsored cube will be located on the Maagplatz Zurich, next to the prominent Prime Tower.


Five students of different backgrounds will join forces and try to solve one of the trickiest challenges in the construction industry. They will utilize design thinking and rapid prototyping methodologies to ideate a viable and potentially ground-breaking innovation to benefit construction projects worldwide. Hilti experts will be available to provide feedback and challenge the students throughout the event.

With Hilti's focus on innovation, we need to challenge ourselves and be open to outside-in perspectives to bring the best solutions to our customers' burning issues. We are proud to bring innovation to the market based on technological solutions continuously. For that, we are grateful for our strong partnerships with partners, including educational institutions, and our exchanges with ambitious and solution-minded students in Switzerland and beyond.
