17 Jul YUKKA Lab wins participation in Kickstart Accelerator 2018!
Another exciting week for YUKKA Lab and our team! A photoshoot in Berlin with many funny situations, the Yukka palm, newspapers, magnifying glasses and a brain. And many more kilometers south of Berlin, in the beautiful location of Kraftwerk Zurich, Andreas and Oliver were called on that stage as one of 30 startups that is selected to join the #Kickstarters18.
However, watch it yourselves: Guess who is announced first in the FinTech/Crypto category?!
It´s a 360° video so you might have to turn the camera a bit to see the stage. Video was made by Helmuth Fuchs, CEO of Moneycab.com https://www.moneycab.com/
YUKKA Lab wins participation in Kickstart Accelerator 2018!
Out of 900 applications from 64 countries 60 startups were invited to pitch for Swiss Kickstart Accelerator. We are one of four German startups that were selected for the 2018 program.
Kickstart Accelerator is a Swiss initiative that helps bridge the gap between startups, corporates, cities, foundations and universities to accelerate deep tech innovation. With a strong focus on the financial industry, Switzerland has become one of the world’s leading FinTech hubs. YUKKA Lab was recognised as a solution that can provide cutting-edge solutions to Swiss multinational banks, venture capital and industry partners.
An extensive program with opportunities to implement proof-of-concept (PoC), pilot projects and form innovation partnerships in close cooperation with companies such as Coop, Credit Suisse, Migros, Swisscom, Mondelēz International as well as cities, foundations, and universities will be offered to the selected startups with a lot of support from mentors and experts out of the Swiss innovation ecosystem.
“Switzerland, and Zurich in particular, as a financial hub, is a vital market for us. A lot is happening here, the interest in innovative technologies and the courage to realize something new are tremendous. The Kickstart accelerator gives us access to pilot projects and PoCs with exciting partners such as Credit Suisse, Swisscom, EY, and AXA. This will further push our progress in customer-centric product development,” said Andreas Pusch, CEO and founder of YUKKA Lab AG.
