“The workshop was very useful: we examined our solution using the JED real-estate project that will be completed in the next few years as a basis. The mentors’ feedback was of really high quality,” said Wolfram Willuhn, Data Ahead Analytics.
“The two days were very interesting. We saw where our company’s innovation stands and really appreciated talking to all the important players,” said Nomoko co-founder Vincent Pedrini.
The Swiss Prime Site Startup Accelerator Workshop is a partnership between VentureLab and the real estate company, Swiss Prime Site. The winners will work with Swiss Prime Site management and industry experts with the goal of setting up a pilot project or a proof-of-concept.
