Six startups have joined the IMD Startup Competition 2018/19 Special Edition. They will work with the Executive MBA participants in November and later travel to Silicon Valley in February.
Typically, the search for candidates for the IMD Startup Competition starts in October, however, with the growth of the IMD EMBA class, the organising committee has decided to add a special edition to offer more support to Swiss startups. The committee has chosen six new startups to benefit from the program.
Jim Pulcrano, IMD Affiliate Professor, said “We are thankful to these six entrepreneurs for accepting to work with us. I have long wanted IMD to be able to support more Swiss startups, and with the growth of the Executive MBA we are able to collaborate with 6 more promising ventures.”
The new winners include CYSEC- Yacine Felk – A cyber-security company aiming at providing a secure environment for multi-applications execution in the form of a physically enterprise-grade server appliance, one of its main use case being Blockchain applications requiring a secure wallet system for crypto-assets management.
