Startup Skypull of CP Start-up has been endowed with CHF 100,000 for winning the 2017 W.A. de Vigier Award

19/05/2017

Yesterday at the W.A de Vigier  award ceremony, five Swiss start-ups have been each endowed with CHF 100,000 for winning the 2017 W.A. de Vigier Award. Among them are some which are specializing in wind energy collection, providing assistance to birthing women and speeding up skin growth in the lab.

Approximately 160 Swiss start-ups submitted their projects for the W.A de Vigier award out of which the foundation’s board picked their Top 16, which were narrowed down to ten. Five most outstanding startups out of the ten were identified as the winners of the 2017 award.

Today at the 28th W.A. de Vigier Award ceremony in Solothurn, the five winners have been awarded each with a cash prize of CHF 100’000. More than 200 guests from the fields of economy, politics and science gathered to celebrate the five winners.

 

Skypull, cleantech (TI) – Due to logistic constraints, only a negligible part of altitude wind energy can be exploited by turbines. Skypull developed a lightweight and compact wind-based electricity generation system that can be deployed on a much wider range of locations to generate more renewable power that is twice as efficient as conventional wind turbines.
