Event Details

Join us at the Brooklyn Brewery to learn about cutting-edge tech startups from one of the world’s most innovative countries, and stick around for food compliments of Mable's Smokehouse and beers on us!

This lightning-round pitch competition moderated by Peter Sinkevich, the Director of Fuckup Nights NYC, will feature Switzerland’s 2016 National Startup Team (the Venture Leaders), a competitively selected group of ten young entrepreneurs.

For the past 15 years, successive Venture Leaders teams have traveled to the East Coast to learn from their US peers, and meet with future customers and backers. 2016 marks the Venture Leaders’ Northside Innovation debut!

Hosted by the Consulate General of Switzerland in New Yorkswissnex Boston New York Outpost and venturelab, this pitch competition will be followed by a happy hour at the Brooklyn Brewery.

    Haelixa provides intelligent DNA-based tracing solutions allowing fluid/item tracking and parameter monitoring (temperature, light, pH, oxidants) to support the energy industry (underground exploration and monitoring), and ensure product authentication and quality control as well as liability management.



    A high-quality, powerful and easy solution to showcase images beautifully. With Prodibi, brands can directly use their images online without costly optimization.

   Peter Sinkevich is a career serial entrepreneur, mentor, formal advisor, angel investor and public  speaker, born  from a multi-million dollar exit in his early 20’s before the dot com boom of the  nineties.  Peter currently sits on the  Board of Advisor panels of a half dozen New York City startups,  including KeySupreme, a startup that promises to  solve the global data breach epidemic. He is also  the Director of Fuckup Nights NYC, a global community of 150+  cities in 50+ countries that centers the conversation around failure and the lessons learned from those  experiences.
