Press announcement – the 16 best projects 2017 from W.A. de Vigier!
The W.A. de Vigier Foundation proudly presents the top 16 Start ups.
All these ground-breaking ideas Switzerland has to offer
The W.A. de Vigier Foundation will award five promotional prizes of each CHF 100,000.00 on May 18, 2017 to Swiss start ups. A jury has selected their top 16 candidates out of over 160 project applications. New skin from the laboratory, a tool for cleaner cities and an online assistant for children are only three of sixteen solutions which show the strength of Swiss innovation.
The number of top quality projects has again been impressive according to Regula Buob, the managing director of the W.A. de Vigier foundation. Sixteen start ups have been selected to present their projects to the foundation board. Of these 10 will be nominated and 5 will receive the prize. Before that experts will evaluate the products and for the first time all CEOs of these start ups will undergo a leadership assessment. Both expertises will be presented to the board in order to be able to have a deepened validation discussion and to give the start ups an individual and sustainable feedback. "In the selection process we focus even more on the personality of a start up CEO. From this year on we also want to check aspects like leadership, team management and entrepreneurship and give effective feedback in this area."
From February 20, 2017 onwards you will find these best applicants on www.devigier.ch.
