Berner Start-Up Evening

The last start-up evening in Bern took place on 21 September 2016 under the slogan ‘Start in entrepreneurship: How a business idea becomes a success’. In his keynote speech in front of the audience, Kurt Schär, founder of Biketech AG and developer of the electric bike ‘Flyer’, not only shared the exciting history of the company, which he had set up, but also shared his experiences from his other projects and different board appointments as well as personal success factors. He was followed by Michael Schranz, who is responsible for business development and marketing at the Bern agency Apps with love, which has successfully specialised in the development and design of apps for 10 years. With the Bern formula student BFH project, Luca Placi finally demonstrated how entrepreneurship can develop directly in a university and what stumbling blocks he had to overcome and highlights he had already experienced along the way. The question relating to how much planning is needed for a start-up and which role the business plan plays when starting up a company was discussed during the subsequent panel discussion.

Around 100 people from the University of Bern, the University of Applied Sciences in Bern, business and our business partners from the private and public sectors attended the event. The discussions continued after the speeches with a full-bodied aperitif in the impressive rooms of the house of the University of Bern.
