Event date

Every once in a while, there is somebody with an idea that has the potential for a revolution. Revolutionizing a market, consumer behavior or in general our society and the world we live in. Running such a venture can be challenging. Existing paths are not easy to leave and these ventures potentially face strong headwinds. But there comes a time when you have beaten the odds. When you stay on top of the mountain and realize, you made it.

This happened to Lukas Böni and Anna Grassler, our two key speakers at the Business Ideas event. Feel the Startup Groove of FELFEL and Planted! We invite you to listen to their inspiring Startup Stories and to connect with inspiring, like-minded people!

The event is co-organized with our Partner Startfeld

Lukas Böni

Co-founder of Planted. Lukas Böni studied food sciences at the ETH Zurich. Following his doctorate, he founded the ETH spin-off Planted together with Eric Stirnemann, Pascal Bieri and Christoph Jenny. With new, innovative and sustainable foods, they want to re-orient the food value chain in such a way that 10 billion people can be fed in a sustainable, healthy and enjoyable way – without needing masses of animals for food.

«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.»
