Global Entrepreneurship Week Basel – A Success Story Continues

In Basel alone, this year’s highlights were chasing each other. With the motto “Moving Entrepreneurs Forward, Together“, the organizing committee organized a series of events, which this year again brought hundreds of interested guests closer to entrepreneurship, enabled new contacts and initiated project ideas. 

A few examples: 
Youth Entrepreneurship Workshop: With exciting keynotes, the youngsters were able to learn what it entails to build an independent business.  
Digital Leadership – DigitalBasel explored the question of why good communicators will be the leaders of tomorrow.

Roche launched the Future Pharma Initiative together with Xircles and GEN Switzerland (Global Entrepreneurship Network). Together with decision-makers and key stakeholders from industry, academia, civil society, government, and media, we are creating a unifying initiative with one central goal: From Sickcare to Healthcare

Toolbox – Building with No-Code Projects by University of Basel and Innosuisse: During this session, the participants learned how to build tech products and services without prior experience or knowledge.

University of Basel organized ShaRide: Startup Simulation Game
