EPFL Innovation Park, Canton Vaud and Innosuisse - Swiss Innovation Agency bring you Tech4Growth executive networking conference on September 12, 2023 with a great lineup of speakers and decision makers, connecting start-up founders, corporate innovators as well as academic professors to learn about collaboration models and best practices. Save the date and stay tuned for a more detailed agenda soon...

To stay ahead of the game, companies must develop innovative solutions that meet the challenges of the 21st century. One way to do this, is by collaborating with start-ups, corporates and academic institutions. These partnerships give companies access to cutting-edge technology and ideas, and they help to ensure to remain at the forefront of innovation.

This partnering conference invites potential participants in 4 verticals (Health, Industry 4.0, Finance & Energy) at the same time, with the goal to co-design disruptive solutions for the challenges that individual corporate /start-up / academic research entities are facing. The idea is to leverage on the network of senior leaders built by the first series of events in 2021-2022. We will invite professors, researchers, corporates, CVCs and start-up founders in each of the 4 verticals and we envision making this an annual event gathering the full ecosystem to facilitate partnering between all stakeholders.

We hope you can join this unique experience sharing networking series to connect with key players from the ecosystem! Learn and gain valuable insights from expert speakers who will share their experience on how to build win-win Start-up – Corporate - Academic partnerships.

Confirmed speakers to date include: Raphael Conz of Canton Vaud, Alexander Schlaepfer of Swisscom, Patrick Thévoz of Flyability, Lajla Aganovic of Logitech, Torsten Butz of CSS, Veronica Lange of UBS Next Connect, Luiggino Torrigiani of Insolight, Lan Zuo Gillet of EPFL Innovation Park…and more to be announced soon.
