START Global

START Summit

Connection: Bring actively corporates, start-ups, students and investors together by providing a platform with several network oportunities such as pitching competitions, speed dating, background sessions and more.
Education: Teach the participants and enable an awareness of the conference‘s focus topics with speeches, workshops and articles in the magazine.
Innovation: Once the participants have matched, create possibilities for the participants to join forces and use synergies. Create the place where innovation happens.


The University of St. Gallen is great at business, but many start-ups are built around a technological product or rely heavily on technology in order to work. Through the Hack, we aim to bring St. Gallen onto Europe’s tech map and show that technological innovation is also possible at a business university. In an informal and creative atmosphere the hack allows talented students to challenge the problems of the modern world, but also allows programming novices to apply and develop their skills.
