Presented to Swiss FI's at Kickstart Zurich

Data Simply was chosen as one of only 20 or so startups from all over the world to be flown in for an intense few days in June for meetings in Zurich Switzerland. The purpose was for the startups to present their solutions to the top Swiss financial institutions, discuss business collaborations, and get involved in the ecosystem of Switzerland. Data Simply co-founders John and Michelle both attended the event.

We were even taken by trolley around Zurich complete with cocktails! Drinking cocktails on a moving trolley is definitely a skill we are looking to master.
