November 2021 - Kickstart Innovation, one of Europe's leading innovation platforms, has achieved over 200 innovation deals since its inception with the announcement of this year's 50 Proofs of Concepts (PoCs) and other partnerships between start-ups, scale-ups and established companies and organizations. "We naturally hope that among the new partnerships there will be just as successful ones as we have seen, for example, with Planted, Coop and Migros, Axa and Veezoo or PostFinance and decentriq in the past years," explains Katka Letzing, co-founder and CEO of Kickstart Innovation. Since 2015, over 200 such collaborations have been launched in the application areas of Circular Economy, EdTech & New Work, FinTech & InsurTech, Food & RetailTech, HealthTech, Smart City & Technology, with great success. "On the one hand, digitalization and sustainability are drivers in innovation; on the other hand, it shows that the early transformation of processes through digital and other innovative solutions provides a competitive advantage for this. Large companies are increasingly interested in cooperating with high-growth start-ups and developing together here," Katka Letzing continues. This year, 13 Proofs of Concept come from Switzerland, 37 from abroad.
