Want to keep in touch?

Different studies and rankings show that Switzerland holds a top position (if not the top position) in the field of technological innovation.
Three aspects, however, are often discussed in this context where there seems to be room for improvement:
  1. How can we improve the commercialization of innovation? More specifically, how can we harvest the economic benefits of innovation in the country of its origine more effectively? What role do Swiss universities play in this context?
  2. How can we improve the availability of venture capital in Switzerland for innovative, technology-based start-ups, so that young innovative entrepreneurs find ideal conditions to realize their growth ambitions?
  3. Taking a more general perspective, how can the Swiss ecosystem for innovative, technology-based start-ups be optimized, what can we learn from other countries with successful start-up ecosystem?
Swiss policy makers, venture capitalists, and university representatives will discuss the different perspectives around these issues and point out concrete solutions.
The panel includes:
  • Dr. Adrienne Corboud Fumagalli, Vice-Présidente pour l’innovation et la valorisation EPFL Lausanne
  • Martin Godel, Leiter des Ressorts KMU Politik, SECO
  • Prof. Dr. Dietmar Grichnik, Professor für Entrepreneurship und Technologiemanagement, Universität St. Gallen
  • Alexander Stoeckel, Partner, b-to-v
  • Jean-Philippe Tripet, Managing Partner & Founder, Aravis SA
  • Thomas Heimann, SECA (Moderator)
  • Maurice Pedergnana, SECA (Moderator)
The event is organized and supported by SECA, aravis, b-to-v, HBM Partners and the University of St. Gallen.
