Winner's Stories


“The Start-Up Innovation Camp gave us great exposure to new customers, potential investors and partners.

We definitely recommend for everyone to attend.”

KITRO, winner Impact Category 2018 

Participating at the WTFL in both 2018 and 2019 gave us a platform to talk directly to a multitude of relevant players.
With the exposure we received from pitching on the main stage we were able to generate new leads, attract investment
potential and showcase our product to an international audience. The support and visibility we received from WTFL
has undoubtedly boosted the growth and development of KITRO in the past few months.





“The Start-Up Innovation Camp connected us with great coaches, gave us a lot of new ideas and a lot of positive

exposure at an early stage”

RoomPriceGenie, winner Transaction Category 2018

We didn't really know what to expect when we signed up for WTFL in 2018. What we got was first a great camp with top

coaches who gave us new ideas and inspiration. Second, an award that gave us a lot of publicity and validation as a company

to the outside world. Third, membership of a positive and forward looking network, that it is really a pleasure to be part of.

Martin and his team have great vision and a positive can-do attitude and it is great to be part of the WTFL community.





“The Start-Up Innovation Camp was a great opportunity to meet and exchange exciting ideas with like-minded

entrepreneurs and industry leaders! One of them even joined us as COO and another two as members of our

Advisory Board, and we made lots of useful and interesting contacts. It definitely put us on the map of innovative

travel tech startups to watch”.

The Trip Boutique, winner Destination Category 2018

Joining the Start-Up Innovation Camp in 2018 was a very important step in establishing credibility in the tourism, travel and

hospitality industries. With WTFL’s support and network, The Trip Boutique was able to set the stage for the next phase of its

development, by getting exposure to potential investors and business partners and exploring collaborations with important

industry players.





“The Start-Up Innovation Camp helped WeWent get more visibility in the MICE Industry, got us connected to interested

investors as well as brought us valuable connections, some of them becoming our sounding board and partners.”

WeWent, finalist Transaction Category 2018

Attending the Camp in 2018 was the first time exposure to the tourism industry, as we always focused on the HR/Employee Engagement.

Since the Camp, we expanded to a new market - United Kingdom and started a new study with HSLU HR Professor

who we met at the Camp. We attended many different events but The Startup Innovation Camp was one of the best we have seen

in Switzerland. The combination of pitching, mentoring, feedback and stressless networking. Highly recommended.
