Innovation by start-ups is booming, and corporations increasingly innovate by acquiring them. This represents both an opportunity for early-stage investors and a strategic trend that strongly affects the corporate world. 

First introduced in 2015, IMD Alumni Community for Entrepreneurship (IMD ACE) has conducted several online (virtual) events in 2016, followed by already 14 start-up investment events in Lausanne and Zurich in 2016-2017.  We are now extending this offer to the Basel alumni.

We are delighted to invite you to the 2nd IMD ACE Basel start-up investments event on November 23rd, 5:45pm at Markthalle Basel, Viaduktstrasse 10, 4051 Basel. 

Face-to-face interactive event aimed at IMD alumni in the Basel area.  Please only register if you are confident that you will attend.  In case your plans change, please make sure that you cancel your registration.

Event Agenda:

17:45 – 18:30 Welcome and introductions
18:30 – 19:00 Entrepreneurship learning.  Paul Krell, IMD EMBA and successful co-founder, will speak on key focus points in setting up a new business.

Real World, Real Impact. Group Debrief. Following startup pitches, you will be able to discuss the opportunities and participate in a debrief with experienced investors.  Two separate groups - one for investor members and one for non-members.


The Online IMD ACE community is vibrant and well complements face-to-face events. On the community you can access the recordings the previous events and take part in discussions around entrepreneurship and innovation.

Participants of this event (group debrief) will be subject to a short and simple NDA.

The event is run in collaboration with Go Beyond Early Stage Investing, a start-up investing platform with a strong presence in Switzerland and a strong performance track record in early stage start-up investments.
