Registration and welcome

We will get a brief introduction of HighTechXL and their ecosystem for business growth by Betsy Lindsey.

True to the IMD experience in Lausanne, we will have an interaction with several of the startups currently in the HighTechXL program. Short presentation by each startup, after which we will split up into separate groups that will each get to work with one of the selected startups.  

The exercise is designed to leverage our collective experience to assist these daring entrepreneurs.

About the Alumni Café formula

The Alumni Café events are typically organised in a different, more interactive and smaller scale format than regular Alumni events and provide participants the opportunity to network, interact and quickly delve deeper into the subject matter in smaller groups in a way that aims to replicate the IMD experience in Lausanne.
