After the super successful Startup CampSwitzerland 2009 in Basel the team is back at the table preparing for the 2010 edition. Stay tuned, good things to come!
Last night we had another UX Chuchi meeting in our secret underground Amazee office. UX stands for User Experience and Chuchi is Swiss German for kitchen. At the Chuchi meetings we like to hear about other people's businesses and scrutinize the living daylights out of them. All of this of course goes down in very civilized and constructive ways.
This morning, Miss Swissmiss, Tina Roth Eisenberg, invited creative people from the Zurich, um, creative scene, to attend the first ever Swiss Creative Morning. The series of Creative Mornings usually runs in New York, where Swiss-born Tina works as a designer. She has made a name through blogging as Swissmiss and of course, the turn-out was huge. Everybody came, although Tina admitted that she had not thought so.
Yesterday evening the first Techcrunch Award “The Europas” took place. Shortly after 6pm people were standing in line to enter the trendy event location Delfina. Once inside, everybody grabbed a glass of Champagne or a beer and started networking.

My trip to Boston with the Venture Leaders 2009 is over. It was fantastic and I just want to share a few impressions of our MIT Campus Tour. The Massachusetts Institute of Technology is a private research university located in Cambridge, Massachusetts, United States.
If you live in Zurich or the Zurich area, be sure not to miss our presentation at Dock 18 at Rote Fabrik this Friday, the 26th.
