The speaker of the Night is Karim Nemr, Co-Founder & Chief Business Officer of PXL Vision
About: Karim Nemr is the co-founder and CBO (Chief Business Officer) at PXL Vision, leading B2B sales, marketing & business development. PXL Vision is an ETH spin-off focused on digital identity verification. Karim started his career as a business developer at Dacuda, the company founded by Swisspreneur guest Michael Born. He joined the company at a very early stage and was heavily involved in their later exit to the American company Magic Leap in 2017. After Dacuda had been acquired, he soon decided to leave the company for a new venture – PXL Vision – which he had conceived with 4 of his former Dacuda colleagues.
To date, PXL Vision is most renowned as the technology provider for the SwissID solution and for their customer verification and onboarding solutions for enterprises. In May 2020, PXL Vision secured CHF 4.6 m in seed financing. The investment round was led by SIX Fintech Ventures. The company has also been awarded the Swiss Economic Award and was admitted to the SEF Upscaler Program. Going forward, PXL Vision wishes to expand geographically and also branch out into additional use cases beyond customer onboarding.
Karim holds a Bachelor's in International Business Administration and Hospitality Management from École Hôtèliere de Lausanne.
