Whitable becomes Company of the Year 2024

On Friday, 31 May and Saturday, 1 June, the best 25 mini-enterprises in Switzerland competed for the title of National Company of the Year 2024 in the hall of Zurich main station. The winner has now been announced: Whitable from the Alte Kantonsschule Aarau (WMS/WG)!

With their practical stain remover stick, the team of Whitable was able to win over the jury and to become Switzerland's best mini-enterprise. To convince the jury of their business idea, the teams spent two days selling their products and services at their stands, conducting interviews with experts and giving stage presentations.

The young people were convincing in every aspect. They managed to skilfully combine clever production methods, innovation and sustainable business management. The team of 7 members from the Alte Kantonsschule Aarau can therefore represent Switzerland at the European Final in Catania (Italy) in July. In addition to the official ranking, specific awards were presented by selected partners:
