B-Innovative 3rd Cohort review in Switzerland

ch1The third cohort started on the 20th of March in the Technopark of Zurich. There were 20 inscriptions. But despite the acceptable number, only half of them actually took part in the first lecture. As we were familiar with this phenomenon from the first two cohorts, we were not very much surprised. The feedback forms we received were always excellent and the Networking-Apéro much appreciated. One of the few and at the same time the major critique we got, was that the students had already taken part in a similar course at university or ETH.

At the end of the last evening Michael Meyer from the Technopark Academy presented the Business Creation course (module 3). Participants who were interested could attend this additional course, which started on the 9th of May 2014. The b-innovative courses were set on purpose before the beginning of the “Jumpstart your venture” course series.
We were very delighted about the three Business Concepts we got. Together with the one from last time we totally had four Concepts to be evaluated. The evaluators Michael A. Meyer (Technopark Academy), Jan Fülscher (Business Angels) and Andrea Degen (EUrelations AG) all came to the same conclusion that Ralph Dümpelmann’s “Inolytix” was the best concept. The happy winner was very glad to receive CHF 300.-, which he will invest to further develop his startup.
