The Nivitec team gets the support of the Gebert Rüf Foundation!

On January 14, our team defended its avalanche detector drone project against the jury of the Gebert Rüf Foundation at the Impact Hub in Bern. The challenge was to benefit from the incentive program for UAS graduates BREF – First Ventures.

The day after this defence, we received a positive response from the foundation. Today, we have the great pleasure of sharing with you this good news that will allow us to pursue the entrepreneurial and human adventure of our young start-up Nivitec!

From the school-company to the start-up

Nivitec continues its adventure in the entrepreneurial world and takes up residence at the Espace Création in Sion as an emerging project! With the support of CimArk via the Ark grant, the young start-up aims to deploy in the emergency drone market with the objective of developing a first prototype of the Snøw drone for this winter.
