Traverz – one of the 50 most innovative startups in Switzerland
Venture, the leading competition for up-and-coming entrepreneurs in Switzerland, was founded in 1997 as a joint initiative of ETH Zürich, McKinsey & Company, Knecht Holding, Innosuisse and EPFL. With a Jury made up of some of Switzerland’s leading entrepreneurs and businesspeople, nearly 400 businesses applied to be considered for the competition – demonstrating the fast growing nature of the country’s tech eco-system.
Against this incredibly tough list of applicants, Traverz is proud to have been selected as one of the 50 most innovative startups, and one of the 10 finalists in the vertical Retail & Consumer Services.
As a finalist, Traverz will receive mentoring from Venture’s network of industry experts & will be pitching in the competition finals later in May and June.
