Meet & Greet with HSG
We can learn a lot from others and that's exactly what we'll be doing during the Lunch & Learn session with Bottle+ co-founder, Linus Lingg. Linus obtained his B.Sc. in Microengineering at EPFL and his MSc. in Robotics at ETH. Before founding bottleplus in 2021, he worked as a Process Automation Engineer.
bottleplus is a modular water bottle that allows you to produce sparkling water anytime and anywhere. Thanks to the integrated carbonizer, you can carbonate up to 6 liters of your favorite drink on the go before you have to refill it on your refilling station at home.
Linus will be sharing his journey from student, to entrepreneur, to crowdfunding campaigns, to winner of Switzerland's leading startup competition, >>venture>>. More info & tickets
