Monday 11 July 2016 | 17:41 CET | News
Swisscom has selected the top 10 applicants for the 2016 StartUp Challenge, which was launched in mid-March. More than 200 start-ups applied for a place on the Business Acceleration Programme, the highest number of applications since the Challenge started in 2012, with over 90 percent of them from Switzerland. The 10 finalists will now pitch at the campus of the Ecole polytechnique federale de Lausanne (EPFL) on 16 August. Swisscom and the EPFL are setting up a digital technology centre there as part of their strategic partnership.
