Official “Kick-off” Event GEN Switzerland


Advancing Swiss Entrepreneurship

The Global Entrepreneurship Network (GEN-Global) is the world’s foremost network of entrepreneurs. GEN-Switzerland is hosting a round table discussion on “Learning From Global Innovation Hubs?”

In order to solve our global challenges and build sustainable economies and societies, we need to connect entrepreneurs around the world. GEN Switzerland is dedicated to building bridges between the local and global entrepreneur ecosystems.

In a peer-to-peer exchange between key stakeholders from the Swiss entrepreneur ecosystem (entrepreneurs, media, academia, business and politics) and members of other global innovation hubs, participants will have a chance to discuss challenges and explore opportunities within a strong and internationally connected Swiss entrepreneurial community.

Our discussion will be enriched by e.g.:

  • Ana Barjasic (European Business Angel Network, Entrepreneur, Investor, Innovator)
  • Dr. Sara Hürlimann (founder
  • Dr. Bernd Pfister (co-founder of Invision AG)
  • Wolfgang Scheikl (CEO, Forbes DACH)
  • Prof. Peter Vogel (Professor of Family Business and Entrepreneurship, IMD)

We will strive towards concrete initiatives that will take effect after the event.
The discussion will be followed by a networking apéro.
