We are proud to announce that Creative Supply’s Christian Schickler, Head of Digital and Content, has been selected as an Expert for the very first edition of the Kickstart Accelerator. The program is set to take place in Zurich this summer and for the first time ever.
Alongside other Mentors, Experts and Executives from SBB, UBS, Swiss Life, Swisscom, Swiss Airlines, Migros and Ringier amongst others, Christian will consult leading global start-ups over the course of three months.
Kickstart is the most ambitious Swiss startup program to date. Never before has Switzerland or Europe had a multi-corporate and equity-free accelerator program welcoming founders from around the world.
Backed by academia, corporates and the local startup ecosystem, it aims to put Switzerland on the map by bringing some of the most promising early-stage startups from different fields to Switzerland for three months.
Kickstart was founded in 2015 and is an initiative by the Kick Foundation in cooperation with DigitalZurich2025.
DigitalZurich2025 is a cross-industry association created from the shared vision of its founding members to strengthen the Greater Zurich Area’s position as a digital hub and to project those benefits across the whole of Switzerland. Initiated by Marc Walder, CEO of Ringier, DigitalZurich2025 was founded by 20 renowned organizations, under the patronage of economiesuisse, the Canton and the City of Zurich.
