SKINNOVATION IS…

Talks

Meet interesting speakers in the casual atmosphere of a ski hut and learn from their experiences and knowledge.

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.
