Congratulations Team Qumram – Silicon Valley here we come!

The Swisscom StartUp Challenge is organised by Swisscom, in partnership with venturelab. The mission of the Challenge is to support high-tech startups in IT/Telecom, Internet of Things, Big Data and FinTech,  with the talent and drive to conquer the world with their innovative solutions.

  • Tailor-made business acceleration program, just for Qumram
  • Access to the broad network of Swisscom’s outpost in Silicon Valley
