What a great first fundraising event we had on Friday night! The Amazee Booster Party went down well in every aspect. There were loads of people, everybody was having a good time, the collaborative wine-cooler worked well and we raised quite a bit of money for four projects on Amazee. An all-out success, in other words, and certainly not the last party we had!

A few weeks ago I was quite amazed and very happy when Pascale Bruderer, Vice-President of the Swiss Parliament contacted me – via Facebook! She heard about the StartupCamp Switzerland and wanted to learn more about Switzerland's Startup landscape. So she invited Patrick Liechti and me to visit her in the Bundeshaus last Monday.
For me it was the first major conference I attended, so I had basically no idea of what I had to expect.
The Lift 09 started on Tuesday lunchtime for me when all of us volunteers met up. A great bunch of people with the most different backgrounds and nationalities.
Tuesday was all about building up and getting the last things done.
