Switzerland Wins An Award at Europe’s Largest Entrepreneurship Festival

The national winning team of the Company Programme Whitable represented Switzerland at this year’s European Final of the Company Programme: Gen-E, which took place from 2 to 4 July in Catania, Italy.

Once in Italy, the team perfected their pitch, which they then presented to an international jury. It was then time to build their own stand to present their product, an innovative portable stain remover. The mini-enterprise was able to impress experts as well as international teams! With their magnificent performance, they won the ManpowerGroup Ready for Work Award.

The event gave the students of the Alte Kantonsschule Aarau the opportunity to socialise, exchange ideas with international teams from all over Europe and visit some of the most beautiful places in Italy.

We would like to thank our umbrella organisation JA Europe for organising the event, JA Italy for hosting it and, of course, our fantastic team Whitable for their commitment!
