On the eve of the World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos, 18 Swiss Startups got the chance to present their business ideas on the second digitalswitzerland Investor Summit at Zurich Airport.

Over 200 Investors and Guests attended. But the main focus was on the startups. Most of them already have some kind of liquidity. The attractiveness of founding in Switzerland seems to lay in the concentration of talents and network and not the money.

Markus Gross, Professor at ETH Zurich, put it that way „creativity is a natural resource in Switzerland”.

While Marc Walder, CEO of Ringier, showed his inspiration by saying “I believe in Switzerland I believe in the chances of digitalization.”

Organized and executed by our six partners ETH Zürich, Swiss Economic Forum, Credit Suisse, UBS, Google and NZZ,  the Investor Summit 2017 was another big success to the Startup Ecosystem in Switzerland.

We are very happy and proud about the excellent Startups on stage and the big success and we will be happy to welcome you next year to the 3rd edition.
