EXPLORE is a project founded by START Global and the ETH EC in 2017, with a vision to ignite Swiss students passion for entrepreneurship and inspire them to become entrepreneurs themselves and develop groundbreaking ideas. We believe that combining business and technology can solve society’s challenges and foster Switzerland as an innovative country.
Hereto we bring a combination of HSG and ETH students to the most important hubs for entrepreneurship and innovation. Before the trip, the participants will attend various workshops and START Summit 2019.
This year ́s EXPLORE Trip will bring high profile students to Barcelona. After this trip, the students will bound again in a workshop and the project partners will foster their further education, networking and inspiration on entrepreneurship.

StartNOW! is connecting the dots around innovation and entrepreneurship by organizing a yearly 2-day entrepreneurial conference on the campus of ESADE in Sant Cugat, Barcelona. Their vision is to host the most interaction-centric and exceptional entrepreneurial conference in Barcelona driven by aspiring students.
Alongside companies like N26, Revolut, TravelPerk and SEAT, we will introduce the START Barcelona project to the student community for the first time ever on the 2nd of March from 2:30pm to 3:30pm. Our presentation will consist of a brief 15 minute introduction of START Barcelona and its team, followed by a quick 45 minute case competition.
The Case Competition: Barcelona 2029. Imagine how the city will look like 10 years from now. Which technologies will define it? How will these technologies impact the economy and the consumers of Barcelona? Participants are free to choose how to tackle this case. They can explain broadly which technological fields and/or business models will be more prevalent in the future or they can focus on one specific technology and delve deeper into its potential applications. It's a fun, quick challenge based on speculation that rewards both the participants' imagination as well as their knowledge about the current technological ecosystem and its trends.
The Prize: The winner will receive a ticket for the START Summit (www.startsummit.ch), with accommodation and food included for the two whole days of their stay. Not only that, but they will be able to choose the type of ticket that fits them the most: Student, Visitor, Founder, Investor or Corporate, with values of up to 669 CHF (589 EUR).
