Company Visit @ Wingtra
Company visit @ Wingtra
At the company visit at the ETH-Spinoff Wingtra, the students from HSG, ETH, and EPFL could learn more about what the journey of creating a startup in the drone space looks like.
Upon arrival, a tour of the office in Zurich was given, showing and explaining how the different parts of the company grew. Following that, a demonstration of the product of Wingtra, a geomapping drone, was planned but unfortunately had to be canceled last minute due to heavy rain. Instead, the students got an in-depth presentation about how the startup was founded, how it’s structured, and what the future of Wingtra could look like. On top of that Elias Kleimann, one of the co-founders attended and told his view on how to found a startup. It all ended with an Apéro giving the participants a chance to network and connect with other entrepreneurship enthusiasts.
Headquartered in Switzerland, Wingtra is the world’s leading VTOL drone producer for mapping, survey and mining industry professionals.
