For three days (Thursday to Sunday), Voyagers.io will bring together 40 exceptional individuals working on climate-tech projects for a special weekend adventure in the Swiss Alps. This is a not-for-profit weekend, intended to bring together people using tech to solve problems ranging from carbon sequestration and energy storage to new alternatives to plastics. The group will be a diverse group of startup founders, investors, researchers and regulators from a wide geography.
WHAT WILL THE PROGRAMME LOOK LIKE?
This three-day adventure will make the most of the mountainous Gstaad region of western Switzerland, easily reachable by one of Europe’s most stunning train journeys. Based at the comfortable and charming HUUS Hotel in Gstaad, we’ll hike Alpine trails, sail the Sarine river’s white-water rapids, explore a melting glacier, cycle the mountain paths and get to know each other as we engage with the exceptional landscape.
We will cook together, share stories, play late-night games — all activities designed to build meaningful connections as you make significant new friends. And, of course, we will enjoy the best of local food and drink, in some very special locations.
We are minimising indoor activities and putting anti-COVID safety measures at the heart of our planning.
The group you brought together was incredibly inspiring, thought-provoking and generous. I’ve made many good friends who I’ll be in touch with for years to come and hopefully one or two investors. You guys are incredible
