Traveltech start-up scouting and shortlist

Traveltech executive workshop

The TravelTech workshop series brings together leaders in the field, particularly those with experience and interest in the wide array of technological solutions and business models which have had such an impact on the sector. The aim is to reflect the innovation needs of incumbents and traditional providers as well as the upstarts who have had such a disruptive impact on the status quo. They also bring together leaders in the field to define strategic R&D guidelines for the labs, scouting and research projects of a future LifestyleTech Competence Center.

The workshops try to identify the innovation requirements between and within companies in the sector, build bridges across different economic areas, including between investors and brands/retailers/manufacturers and also to connect all these businesses with upcoming and valid start-ups/scale-ups. The workshops represent an initial step towards the development of a LifestyleTech Competence Center, which would benefit all industry stakeholders within Switzerland and beyond.



This is a waypoint workshop to develop themes and projects set out in previous meeting. Thanks to the support of investment management firm Loomish SA, participants will be able to evaluate and access scouted start-ups working in the Travel-tech area. Loomish will also present a short list of relevant university R&D projects and tech corporations interested in co-financing innovation initiatives.
