SHANGHAI, May 14, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Following Switzerland's record-performance at CES ASIA 2019 winning 6 CES Innovation Awards, SwissTech will be taking the stage again in Asia this 10 June – virtually! SwissTech Pitchinar 2020 is to be joined by 20 leading Swiss startups in the fields of HealthTech, IoT, Robotics, Artificial Intelligence, AR/VR, Vehicle Technology and beyond. This first-ever online pitching competition with 20 SwissTech startups is certainly poised to take the recognition of Swiss excellence in tech and innovation to the next level.

The pitching competition will feature 90-second pitches from each of the startups, providing them with a platform to spotlight their products and services with prospective investors, partners and industry experts, to form game-changing partnerships and facilitate their market entry ambitions in the world's fastest-growing innovation ecosystem.

Swiss Ambassador to China Bernardino Regazzoni expressed his pleasure at the enthusiasm shown by these talented Swiss entrepreneurs to explore the Chinese market. "Backed by strong institutional partners, the SwissTech Pitchinar showcases 20 outstanding startups, demonstrating Switzerland's leading position as a hotbed for technology and innovation.
