EPFL Connect: a networking event for innovation enthusiasts RedLine Content

The EPFL Alumni and EPFL Vice-Presidency for Innovation are pleased to invite you to EPFL Connect!

This networking event will allow EPFL entrepreneurs and innovation enthusiasts to significantly extend their network over the course of one evening.

Entrepreneurs from all EPFL entrepreneurship programs (X-grants, Y-grants, Innogrants, Make projects, Catalyze4life, Innoseed, Enable & all EPFL alumni entrepreneurs) and experts from EPFL & IMD alumni communities and their networks are most welcome, as well as anyone interested in engaging more with innovation.

This event will be animated by professional facilitators, who have a lot of playful tricks to make you meet a lot of people in a short timeframe, while collecting useful insights for your entrepreneurial projects, or identifying opportunities to step in the EPFL innovation ecosystem.

Please prepare your questions for the Proaction café if you would like to share it.

If you have a specific request like “looking for a co-founder, team members, an expert in a specific field etc…”, it will be possible to have a 3 min pitch during the last part of the event.
Please contact emilie.michel@epfl.ch to organize your speech.


EPFL Alumni contributing members benefit from a special discount (CHF 10.- instead of CHF 20.-).
The event is free for EPFL students, PhD and postdocs. Please mention the SCIPER number that matches your name to benefit from a free ticket. Your number will be verified by the organizers.

*Proaction café is a facilitation for action-oriented, creative, and inspirational conversations. The participants are invited to share their questions (around projects, or seed ideas) and get input from others.
