The top 20 of the global unicorn club, a list of almost 400 current private companies valued at USD 1B+, is dominated today by the US. European startups are catching-up fast with their US counterparts.

Switzerland too has been on a fast track growth, in 2019, a record of CHF 2.3 billion flowed into Swiss startups, an increase of 83% with respect to 2018. However, only a few companies, invested in during the last seven years in Switzerland, scaled successfully to serve a large, global market.   
IMD ACE and phase2 believe there’s a great opportunity for the Swiss entrepreneurial ecosystem to learn the art and science of growing a business internationally and capturing a significant market from those who succeeded in doing so. 
In a first of a series of events, Samuele Gantner in conversation with Ian Charles Stewart, will expose Nexthink’s journey from early stages to becoming a global market leader."
