MassChallenge: strengthening collaboration

Becoming a founding partner of MassChallenge Switzerland in 2016 was a key step for us in fostering a culture of open innovation. It’s a great opportunity to connect and collaborate with hi-tech start-ups that could transform our business and shape the future industry landscape.

During the MassChallenge accelerator programme in 2017, for example, we talked with several finalists, one of them being the Swiss start-up Sleepiz, which offers contact-free solutions to measure a patient’s vital signs to enable a diagnosis of sleep disorders in the home environment.

From 2018, the MassChallenge platform will be used as a foundation for the European Institute of Innovation & Technology (EIT) Food Accelerator Network.
