Co-Founder & Co-Lead
Bridging the gap between startups, corporations, cities, universities & institutions to accelerate deep tech innovation.
Kickstart is an ecosystem innovation platform that bridges the gap between startups, corporates, cities, foundations and universities to accelerate deep tech innovation. Science and engineering-driven technologies have the potential to solve humanity’s biggest challenges. They require unprecedented collaboration between powerful established organisations and the most audacious entrepreneurs out there. Each year, Kickstart brings around 100 such entrepreneurs to Switzerland to collaborate with key players for Proofs of Concept (PoC), pilot projects and other innovation partnerships. The program is free of charge (no fees, no equity) for selected growth ventures and it provides exceptional access to the executives and decision-makers of Kickstart’s partners.
