From figure skating professional to entrepreneurship
Nilson Kufus

Nilson was born in Zurich and devoted most of his youth to being a professional athlete, eventually becoming a Swiss champion in figure skating. After “retiring”, he completed his Liberal Arts & Sciences studies in the Netherlands and decided to found Nomoko in early 2015, together with two other co-founders. Since then, he has become a father and shares his time between building the Mirror World at Nomoko and spending time with his family. Nilson has been selected twice as one of Switzerland’s digital leaders and has fulfilled his dream of speaking at a TedX Salon event last year, on the topic of “Enabling the 4th Industrial Revolution”.

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

«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.»

Ramona Lieser

«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.»
