zkipster was granted a rare honor for a 6 year-old Swiss company: nominated as a finalist for the 2018 Swiss Economic Award.
The Swiss Economic Award is Switzerland’s most prestigious prize for Swiss entrepreneurs, with a jury of industry leaders from Lufthansa, UBS, IBM, and others. Monika Ribar, jury chair and board member of Lufthansa Group, nominated zkipster as one of the top Swiss tech companies to contend for the 2018 prize.
In a rigorous 5-month process that included multiple challenges, pitches, and presentations in front of the highly decorated jury, zkipster was selected as a finalist from over 200 submissions to speak at the Swiss Economic Forum in Interlaken, broadcasted live on Swiss National Television to more than 200,000 viewers.
David Becker, co-founder and CEO of zkipster, took the stage in front of more than a thousand peers, from other top Swiss leaders and founders to notable guests from abroad including former US Secretary of State John Kerry.
“New zkipster tools will help hosts identify relevant guests within their network and give them the insights to curate better guest lists,” said David of his vision for zkipster’s goals.
