Welcome to the #StartupShow, episode No.99.5 - different than any other! It feels great to finish 2017. on a high note.
Spontaneously, the Mayor of Zurich agreed to be interviewed by Cédric.
Before we complete the Season 1.0 of the #StartupShow, we present a special episode and an exclusive interview with Corine Mauch, the Mayor of the City of Zurich.
Ms Mauch has been the Mayor of the City of Zurich for the past eight years and, on this position, she has been responsible for the economic promotion of Zurich and the city's startup scene.
We used this unique opportunity to learn what the plans of the Zurich municipality are when it comes to smart city strategy, and what entrepreneurs can expect from Zurich in the future.
We also found out who to contact if you have any unanswered questions related to your startup or how the municipality can help you. Don't miss the episode!
Enjoy the show!
Episode #100 will be aired on January 8th, 2018. See you then!
