Successful full system test at Skypull

14/08/2017

Dear friends, 

It is a great pleasure to write this newsletter. We have an important milestone to celebrate!

In our last letter we announced that we were intensively working on an upcoming full system test with the intention to validate the concept and pave the way forward.

Today we can say: MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!

It has been quite a journey to reach this point with the Skypull team working tirelessly and passionately long hours over the last weeks and months that culminated in a full week of testing atop a small mountain in Southern Switzerland.

Here are a few impressions and glimpses behind the scene of this week of testing.

System testing



A big thank you to our industrial partners AEM SA and Studio Oikos s.r.l. for their boundless support!

Next steps

A professional filmmaking crew was on site during the final testing phase. They are going to produce some movie clips about the full system test. We will obviously share them as soon as they are ready.

We are planning a second phase of the proof of concept later in September, where we intend to validate other features and functionalities. Again, we will report back to you in due course.

Our intentions to refurbish our website are still confirmed but have been slightly delayed due to other priorities. We are working on it. 


On August 28 and 30 will be pitching twice at the SEIF in Zurich. The first event is a competition that awards a prize for social entrepreneurship. The second event is a formal pitch in front of investors.


On September 9, we will fly to Silicon Valley with two EMBA teams from IMD for an intensive pitching week. 


We will be pitching at Venture Kick in Lausanne for Stage 3 on December 6, 2017.

That's all for now folks!
