As part of our partnerships with the most important events in Switzerland—including the World Economic Forum, the Montreux Jazz Festival, the Digital Festival, the Swiss Management Society Forum, the St. Gallen Symposium, and the EY Entrepreneur of the Year award—we conduct interviews and reports with business leaders, influencers, and other key personalities from Switzerland and abroad.
When leaders like Microsoft Switzerland CEO Marianne Janik or Hublot Chairman Jean-Claude Biver share their failures, they do so in front of a packed audience. The recent event by @ETH Entrepreneur Club attracted 1,500 future entrepreneurs.
