In September, Preflet was selected as one of the startups in the Kickstart Innovation 2023 program, a leading platform for innovation in Switzerland. Preflet joined the Smart City vertical, where we had the opportunity to collaborate with various corporate partners, such as AXA, Swisscom, Zurich Insurance, and many others.
During the four-month program, we engaged with potential customers, mentors, experts, and investors, and showcased our solution at several events in Zurich, Lausanne, and Geneva. Notably, we had the opportunity to participate in the AXA Pitch Day, where Francesca, one of our co-founders, delivered a pitch to a large audience of stakeholders.
During the program's closing ceremony, on November 23, 2023, we announced that we are exploring a potential Proof of Concept with AXA, one of the leading insurance companies in Switzerland. The Proof of Concept aims to offer AXA’s customers an all-in-one platform to monitor and change their energy usage in their buildings and homes, using Preflet’s energy AI platform. We are confident that this collaboration will create significant value for both parties, as well as for the environment and society.
Preflet is very grateful for the support and guidance we received from Kickstart Innovation, as well as from their corporate partners and mentors. We are looking forward to continuing our journey and scaling our impact in the Smart City sector. We believe that our solution can make a difference in reducing the carbon footprint and improving the quality of life of millions of people around the world.
