Startup Digest Zurich

The personalized insider newsletter for all things startup in Zurich.

Good morning, Zurich startups and entrepreneurs!
“This event is online”
Once upon a time, it was a phrase we never used, because the Zurich Startup Digest was about events that happened in Zurich.
Now we’re all looking forward to events in real life, and soon they’ll be back on the calendar. If enough of us get vaccinated and nothing terrible happens, all of us be able to gather together in real life on a regular basis soon.
“This event is online” won’t disappear even if Covid does, and you want to use it, we’ll keep writing it. Ideally, we’ll be able to add a little “also”, so that it reads “This event is also online”. We’re even open to the use of the retro “hybrid” moniker. Buckle up, this could get a little crazy.
Have a great week, and stay well!
Timo.
Interesting Reads
After starting my 2nd company in 2019, I decided I would write down useful lessons I learned or re-learned along the way. Some were hard-earned & others required steady focus. A thread that I hope may help other founders starting out.
Advice and blog posts on the internet frequently espouse that you’ll know product/market fit when you see it. It’s not very actionable advice. I don’t claim to be the world’s foremost expert, but this is what I learned through scaling multiple startups, launching new products, and advising and investing in dozens of companies.
This excerpt from Levers: The Framework for Building Repeatability Into Your Business will help you prioritize & become more metrics-driven.
>>venture>> announced this year’s Finalists! After yet another year with record-breaking submissions, nearly 200 jury members had the difficult task of selecting the top 10 startups in each of our industry verticals. Normally they have 50 Finalists, however, this year showed a tie for the 10th rank in both the Finance & Insurance and ICT verticals. That leaves 52 Finalists for 2021.
