StartUp ChallengeThese start-ups will bring Swisscom to Silicon Valley
Lively yet characterised by extreme concentration – this is what the atmosphere was like in the Digital Lab at the EPFL in Lausanne on 16 August. No surprises there! The Top 10 participants in the Swisscom StartUp Challenge all started off with the goal of emerging as the winner.
I am proud of the five winners, who will be making their way to Silicon Valley in September, together with Swisscom: The winners, from left to right: Hoël Guerin, Xsensio / Phil Lojacono, Advanon / Matthias Dantone, Fashwell / Lisa Pollaro, Nanolive / Patrick Barnert, Qumram / Mathias Wegmüller, Qumram / centre: Roger Wüthrich-Hasenböhler
Advanon is making it possible for SMEs to finance their outstanding accounts straightforwardly, quickly and transparently.
Fashwell is developing an app which finds the user’s favourite fashion products from online images.
Nanolive uses microchips to make three-dimensional research into living cells possible.
Qumram uses big data to help companies to meet their legal accountability obligations, to uncover fraud and to optimise the customer experience.
Xsensio has developed a wearable that uses the biochemical information on the surface of our skin to obtain information about our state of health.
