This anniversary book published to mark the tenth edition of >>venture>> celebrates Switzerland’s most important start-up competition—and Swiss entrepreneurialism. From fledgling firms based in student dorms to companies with over 600 employees, sales above a hundred millions, and IPOs, the book lets successful >>venture>> graduates tell their own stories, thereby providing advice and encouragement to the next generation of founders. How did they come to start a company? What were the greatest obstacles? And why can failure be a blessing?
Looking for role models? Here they are!
“To date, 2,500 teams have participated in >>venture>>, 650 businesses have been founded, and over 6,000 jobs created. And, as this book shows, some of these new companies have been enormously successful.”
Federal Councillor Doris Leuthard
