The Swiss Innovation Challenge is an 8-month programme that combines a national competition and varied support for the advancement of innovation in Switzerland. The Challenge is open to SMEs, start-ups and individuals who wish to introduce and implement an innovation or who have undertaken an innovative step within the last few years. The competition is divided into three elimination stages, starting from a field with over 100 startups. During the course of the programme, companies are guided in standard business development work, such as drafting a business and implementation plan, and have access to various workshops and coaching opportunities by industry professionals.
Swiss Vault Learnings, Experience and Recognition:
Business Development & Operations Officer, Bobby Thakrar represented Swiss Vault in this year’s Swiss Innovation Challenge (SIC). At each stage of the competition, Bobby pitched to a panel of judges and piqued their interest in the Swiss Vault solution.
While Bobby pitched Swiss Vault through each elimination round, all the way to the final stage, the Swiss Vault Team was also able to participate in multiple workshops, which allowed us to interact and exchange best practices with experts and other start-ups.
We are honored to be recognized in the Top 10 Swiss Innovations for 2020.
The experience was fantastic, and the whole Swiss Vault Team was extremely grateful for the opportunity to learn, grow and expand our network. Congratulations to all the teams that participated. It is great to see the innovative spirit thriving in Switzerland and we would like to give a big thanks to the whole Swiss Innovation Challenge Team for their dedication to and support of innovation in Switzerland.
