The SSD is a unique opportunity to get access to some of the most driven talent at ETH and beyond. Here we got to know some amazing people that work for us now, like Václav.

Participation at SSD is highly recommended. Startups get the opportunity to meet extremely dedicated and smart minds from Switzerland’s best universities.

Through the SSD I got to talk to some inspiring founders and their startups: an opportunity you don’t have very often. I am now working at Lakera, a leading AI safety startup I met at my first SSD!

SSD was always awesome. From going there twice we found several persons who we extended offers / hired later. Highly efficient, recommended!
