Monday, May 1, 2023 | 11:30 AM - 1:00 PM

Breathtaking Alpine passes, skiing, watchmaking, chocolate, fondue, Heidi, neutrality, and, of course, Davos. These are some of the things that come to mind when one thinks of Switzerland. Less well-known is the fact that the country has topped the Global Innovation Index for twelve years in a row.

Please join the Fitzsimons Innovation Community, Colorado BioScience Association, Manufacturer’s Edge, and representatives from Switzerland Innovation for a lunch to discuss the innovation ecosystem in Switzerland and the opportunities for life sciences and advanced manufacturing companies in Colorado.

Furthermore, Sophie is a former tech entrepreneur and an advocate for diversity, inclusion, and equality in entrepreneurship and science.
