Kickstart Innovation, one of the leading innovation platforms in Europe, selected 46 start-ups and intrapreneurship teams out of over 1,000 applications from 62 countries for its eighth Kickstart innovation programme, an 11-week initiative in collaboration with prominent companies, organisations, cities, foundations and universities.
The new partnerships enabling the launch of innovations in Switzerland were officially announced at the end of last year. “We connect established players and emerging entrepreneurs. Since the Kickstart’s inception in 2016, we’ve successfully initiated more than 310 innovation deals and our alumni raised over 2.5 billion Swiss Francs of investments,” reported Katka Letzing, Co-founder and CEO of Kickstart Innovation.
Renowned Swiss companies and institutions such as AXA, Coop, Swisscom, La Mobilière, PostFinance, Sanitas, the City of Zurich, the Canton of Vaud and MSD are seeking innovative solutions through Kickstart to further advance their business models.Click below to share this article
