Start-up Award programs and Business Plan competitions are growing and spreading throughout Switzerland and Europe. While the increasing popularity of these events might be seen as a further opportunity to provide visibility and support to Start-up companies, there is an obvious risk that some companies might get lost in hopping from one competition to the other, thus losing their focus and wasting time that should be better dedicated to developing their business. In this Workshop, five speakers will present their own experience in organizing this kind of events.
We will discuss pros and cons of various formats and in particular identify those aspects that can be crucial for making these events truly effective in stimulating entrepreneurial initiatives and in
identifying promising startups.
