NEW RECORD : 87 START-UP WILL TAKE PART IN STRATEGIS 2020 !

End of the applications for Strategis 2020

Publié le 03 novembre 2019The HEC Espace Entreprise has closed the applications for the Prix Strategis 2020.
As planned, the applications for the 27th Prix Strategis have been closed on October the 31st, at midnight CET. The whole HEC Espace Entreprise team, organizer of the Prix Strategis, is pleased to announce that a new record has been broken : 87 startups have applied, 16 more than the last record in 2017. This highlights the growth and the dynamism of the award, a result of our will to renew and reinvent it – as also proven by last year’s ceremony, for the first time held not on campus grounds but in the breathtaking setting of the Olympic Museum of Lausanne.

We would like to thank the Jury, whose entrepreneurial spirit constantly kindles our motivation and inspires us to take new directions, for instance going in German- speaking Switzerland to extend our reach there ; indeed, this year, forty percent of our contestants come from this area.

In the days to come, the Prix Strategis team will verify the registered start-ups’ eligibility, then forward their application files to our Jury for analysis. Said Jury will meet a first time on November the 21st, at the University of Lausanne, to discuss and chose the 8 semi- finalists. Finally, the names of these start-ups will be revealed in a Press Release, on Friday the 22nd in the morning.

We wish a warm welcome to the 27th Prix Strategis’ contestants. Best of luck and every success in this adventure !
