Key Speaker
Léa Miggiano

With only 25 years, Léa is the co-founder of Carvolution, one of the first start-ups to bring the subscription model for cars to Switzerland. She will share her experiences in building a team, raising venture capital, and launching a disruptive product, basically the “Netflix or Spotify” of the car industry. The startup has already experienced several successful financing rounds (just in September they successfully raised CHF 50 million) and this year they were awarded with the 12th place in the Swiss Startup Awards.

HWZ Alumni Speaker
Sylvan Martin

Sylvan has a true entrepreneurial zest, and lays importance on working ethically and delivering the high standards needed to transform ideas into measurable outcomes through successful implementation and strategic oversight. A year ago, he founded Scrypt, a Swiss asset management company with a focus on technology and quantitative investment strategies in Digital Assets.

«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.»
