Founding Story

Can you please introduce yourself?

START Summit is Europe’s leading student-run startup conference with more than 2’000 participants. It is taking place on the 15th/16th of March in St. Gallen, Switzerland.

What is the founding story of  START Summit?

START was founded in 1996 by sutdents of the University St. Gallen in order to promote entrepreneurship and technology at the university. The idea was to get together all entrepreneurs from Switzerland in one place in St. Gallen and have a START Summit. That is what has evolved now to the biggest startup-event in Switzerland. We aim for supporting the Swiss and European startup-economy, connect the fields of business and tech and foster innovation.

How do you pitch your conference in an Elevator situation?

START Summit brings 2’000 founders, students, investors and corporates together in one place in order to provide a networking and business sourcing platform. It has several stage events, workshops, background sessions, 1-to-1 meetings and other formats integrated to connect the relevant stakeholders with each other.

What makes START Summit unique in the field of Startup Conferences?

What makes START Summit unique is first of all the fact, that it is completely organized by students at this size, which is in no other conference the case. Apart from that, what is unique is the mass of different formats to connect the participants and foster innovation. One good example for this is the Background Sessions. Here, the best 10 startups in a specific business field come together with a corporate, so the relevant parties find themselves easily.
