*fuse challenge in the Innovation Park

On Friday, September 9, 2022 we had *fuse with the *zünder challenge as our guest at Innovation Park.

With *zünder, a new world of innovation and inspiration is created for start-ups, (young) entrepreneurs, mentors, investors, students and interested parties. The *zünder program advances the start-up scene in Central Switzerland by offering interested parties the opportunity to acquire the necessary entrepreneurial know-how in a guided process. With the Accelerator Program, selected start-up projects are given the opportunity to participate in a training series for 12 months and benefit from intensive support from mentors and experts with practical experience.

Investment of up to CHF 100,000 to be won At the Challenge in our park, countless start-ups pitched their innovative business ideas to the jury members of *zünder. Among the participants were the HammerDrum AG, which pursues the vision of an all-encompassing deep drilling technology that will AtlasVR AG, which provides virtual training solutions to support virtual education and training, and zevvywhich offers online software for calculating heating and utility costs. Following the pitching sessions, the jury selected the finalists, who will be invited to the final pitch for the AKS Award on November 4, 2022. Whoever convinces on this day will win an investment of up to CHF 100,000 at the *zünder inspirience day!

And this year, *zünder has come up with the Albert Koechlin Foundation a strong partner who is very concerned about the development of young companies in Central Switzerland. The foundation awards a total prize money of CHF 510,000 in four different categories. The winners in the individual categories will be announced at the *zünder award night.

It was a pleasure to have *zünder as our guest in the park and to meet so many inspiring start-ups.
