Stories of success are incomplete without stories of failures. During this inspiring evening, we bring together diverse, high-profile speakers to share stories of their past failures and unexpected twists in life, and most importantly, how these events have brought them closer to their successes today. They embrace their professional and personal fuckups in an attempt to shatter the taboo surrounding failure and show us what we can learn from our mistakes. Join us in this movement to be bold, adventurous, and unafraid of failing. Do not miss out on this unique opportunity to hear the captivating stories of entrepreneurs and high-level executives followed by a Q&A session.
The world faces many complex problems that heavily impact the way individuals, companies and institutions interact. Entrepreneurship can help address some of these challenges by driving innovative and unprecedented solutions. Universities are in a unique position to inspire their students to acknowledge real-world problems with an entrepreneurial perspective. Providing a dynamic environment and cooperating closely with corporate partners are necessary prerequisites to realize this vision.
InCube helps to bridge this gap, by bringing together universities, students and companies in an inspiring environment. Working in a confined place provides a special setting where innovative ideas are proposed, planned and executed by driven students. The complimentary educational journey ensures that students are equipped with the proper methodologies, tools and skills to evolve an abstract idea into a prototype that they can develop further.
Launch by ETH Entrepreneur Club embraces all the three foundational pillars –inspire, educate, accelerate– of the ETH EC in one single flagship event. Through Launch, it is our vision to break through exclusivity and make entrepreneurial resources accessible. Every year the vibrant entrepreneurial ecosystem of ETH, Zürich, and beyond will be made tangible and reachable to those that dare to dream – and do it. This is one of Zurich’s biggest event that brings together students, startups, professors and professionals under one roof to engage in an intergenerational and multidisciplinary debate on what entrepreneurship is all about – and how to leverage the vast opportunities surrounding us every single day to bring our ideas to orbit. Launch provides an immersive experience through multiple workshops, the Live Pitch Competition of the InCube Challenge, several keynotes and panel discussions on our main stage, each dealing with a plethora of topics focusing on cutting-edge technologies to how to make a business model future-fit.
