SKINNOVATION IS…

Skiing

Click into your skis and hit the slopes. Get some fresh air between the talks and enjoy the mountains.

Networking

Meet like-minded people who are just like you: both, passionate about startups and skiing. Have a great time when attending the Apres-Ski Party in a giant igloo.

Pitching

Pitch your idea in a ski lift to potential investors and business angels, receive valuable feedback and qualify for the big pitch in front of the crowd. You might also challenge your potential investors for a little downhill race.
