SkAD Labs selected as one of top 50 startups to invest in 2018

SkAD Labs has been selected by the Swiss business magazine Bilan as one of the 50 most promising startups in which to invest 2018. The long-awaited list is composed by a jury of innovation professionals, selecting Swiss nuggets in various technology fields.

After several months of selection and evaluations, the jury gathered by Bilan for its annual operation of 50 startups in which to invest has decided. Computer-science, drones, fintech, blockchain, biotech, cleantech, medtech, foodtech ... some in B2B, others in B2C ... Some very advanced, others still at an early stage but with a concept or idea of disruptive nature. Some come from Geneva, others from Lausanne, others from German-speaking Switzerland. In all, they are 50, as every year: the 50 startups in which to invest.

“We are flattered to be selected as one of the most promising 50 startups”, says Dr. Bernhard Petermeier, Co-CEO and Co-Founder of SkAD Labs. “Being recognized by Bilan is showing us that we are on the right path to commercialize our breakthrough technology.”

The expertise of the members of the jury, made up of investors, business executives and innovation specialists, has helped to refine a selection rich in potential. It shows that the breeding ground of young Swiss shoots is far from being exhausted and renewing itself in new areas. The whole selection of startups can be found in Bilan magazine, issue February 28 to March 13.
