Accelerate your startup with the support of successful founders and industry leaders. This workshop covers the following areas; 

  • Checking the entrepreneurial readiness

Our trainer: Marc Sandmeier is the CEO and co-founder of Picstars. Picstars invented a brand new technology that lets brands be present on social media photos and videos taken by ambassadors. Not only does the brand get matched with the perfect fitting ambassador, the brand also controls and measures all social media activities of its ambassadors - in real time. 

The workshop: The series of eight workshops is based on a mission and challenge approach to enhance the validation and execution of your business case. Our goal is to support the best startup talents in Switzerland in order to build world-class startups the fastest way possible. And this is how we work together during our acceleration workshops:
