Happy Friday, Kickstart Family!
In addition to our global activities, Kickstart dispersed around Switzerland this past week for a number of fantastic events, including the very successful launch of Beaulieu Circulaire, Switzerland’s first innovation space dedicated to circularity & inclusion. Our Health & Wellbeing team headed to the GlobalTech Summit in Lausanne on Tuesday, with Building Bridges as our next stop. Yesterday we co-hosted an exclusive event in Bern for PostFinance's VNTR & wider team to present Kickstart's open innovation partnership and how we #makeithappen together, followed by a visit to Trust Valley while our New Work & Learning team ran a virtual session on “Lifelong Learning & Leadership Development''.
Thank you for being part of this adventure!
