We brought 10 selected hi-potential startups to New York and they got to pitch before a full house. Really enjoyed that evening – great energy and a great impression made by Swiss startups in the “Big Apple”. Since then, one of the startups set up their New York office in the space where we held the event: Flatev. … running the show that night: David Weber, project manager for the event at the City of Zurich and myself, MC for the night.
Interesting to learn about the City of New York’s economic development plans as a part of the delegation of the Mayor of Zurich. The scale of the projects is staggering! Great learning that day.
