We’ve got exciting news—
Goodwall has achieved a spot on Venturelab’s 2019 “TOP 25 Swiss Scale-Up” award! 🎉 🚀 🏆
New for 2019, this ranking lists the best Swiss startups around, from Genève to Graubünden and everywhere in between. We’re honored to be on a list that features so many great companies from Switzerland, such as MindMaze, Sophia Genetics, and GetYourGuide. 💪🏿
Andreas Gerber, Head of SME Business at Credit Suisse and President of the Swiss Venture Club, described the Venturelab award saying the winners “all have the potential to develop into major global successes over the next 10 years.”
About the Award
Since 2011, Venturelab has put out its annual “TOP 100 – The Best Swiss Startups” award. Goodwall was fortunate to earn a spot on the list two years in a row, achieving the “TOP 100 Swiss Startups 2016” and “TOP 100 Swiss Startups 2017” awards. 🥇
But, a spot on the list only applies to startups aged 5 years or less, so Goodwall would not normally be eligible for further awards from them. However, for 2019, Venturelab decided to put out a new category for “scale-ups,” which “identifies the companies, aged five years or more, showing the greatest potential for further growth.”
According to Venturelab, the all-new “TOP 25 Swiss Scale-Up” ranking was created because “many promising startups disappear from the TOP 100 Swiss Startup Ranking… To extend the spotlight provided by the TOP 100, experts were also asked to select the TOP 25 scale-ups, companies aged five years or more with strong growth potential, illustrating the promise they had as TOP 100 early stage companies.

Though this is a #humblebrag, we couldn’t have done it without you. Whether blog readers, changemakers, or the Goodwall community as a whole, we are fortunate to be surrounded by amazing, supportive, creative individuals from all around the world.
