The Startup Champions Seed Night, co-organized by EPFL Alumni, the Innogrants and venturelab, is the annual startups presentations & pitch competition bringing together the most promising entrepreneurs from EPFL and the rest of Switzerland. This edition will showcase 24 world-class startups, including the 20 winners of the venturelab programs and some of the most promising EPFL early stage companies.
Besides the pitch competition where attendees will be voting for the best startup, we are glad to announce a great entrepreneur for the keynote: Tej Tadi, founder and CEO of MindMaze SA. MindMaze is a spin-off of EPFL and was founded in 2011 to develop technologies that help patients recover from brain injuries. It is a breakthrough platform combining virtual reality (VR), computer graphics, brain imaging, neuroscience and rehabilitation. Mindmaze was valued at $1Bio in 2016, which made it a Swiss startup unicorn.
The event will welcome angel investors, mentors, industry leaders, local researchers and students for an audience of 300+ people.
