MEET THE VENTURE LEADERS CLASS OF 2015
Running annually since 2000, the Venture Leaders program is a 10-day business development bootcamp in the US for Swiss entrepreneurs presented by venturelab and swissnex Boston. Every March, twenty Swiss-based entrepreneurs – out of hundreds of motivated candidates – are selected to attend the venture leaders program in Boston.
The 2014 Global Pitchfest is one of 15 events designated to celebrate swissnex Boston’s 15 years of connecting the dots between Switzerland and North America in science, education, art and innovation.
In the fall of 2000, Switzerland opened the world’s first ‘scientific consulate’ in Cambridge, Massachusetts. 15 years later, swissnex is a global network, with offices in Boston (Cambridge), Brazil, China, India, Singapore and San Francisco.
