Startup Stories from Digital Entrepreneurs!

It is no secret that we live in a digital era that influences our every day life. At our upcoming Startup Stories Event, you will get the chance to talk to two entrepreneurs that shape the future of digital transformation in education with their businesses.

From our founders you’ll hear stories of both success and failures, as well as their personal start-up experiences. Use this opportunity to ask all your questions and chat with the founders at the Apéro after the event.

«I think female role models are essential for hopefully seeing more female founders in the Swiss startup scene soon.»

Dorina Thiess

«In my opinion there are way too few women in the start-up ecosystem in Switzerland. I am committed to offer my support to help other women become the best version of themselves.»

Luiza Dobre

«Besides inspiring keynotes and information about support offerings from Innosuisse, the Business Ideas Events are a great opportunity to meet like-minded people and those interested in setting up an own company.»
