Kickstart is a spin-off of Impact Hub Zurich and one of Europe’s largest innovation platforms. The program is addressed to later-stage startups that are working on a high level of technological innovation.
In the months to come, livealytics will participate in various workshops and get the chance to receive expert advice and consulting services from executives of leading Swiss corporations. “Being an entrepreneur means staying curious and never stop learning. That’s why we’re really looking forward to this unique opportunity to work together with experienced partners and gain valuable insights” says Matthias Lenke, Managing Director of livealytics.
In addition, during the workshop progress, proof of concepts (PoC) and pilots will be established in collaboration with the Kickstart advisors. Those PoCs are not meant to be theoretical exercises but will be realized as real-life projects and aim to build long term partnerships and generate new customers and/or orders.
