Meet the Start ups: Switzerland

Tuesday 1 June 2021 / 20.00 - 21.00

Meet Chester Houwink
The interactive evening programme includes brief updates from the universities followed by a short talk by TU Delft and ETH alumnus Chester Houwink about his journey from Tesla and Rocket Internet to co-founding Zurich based 9T Labs – a company pioneering industrial 3D printing of carbon fiber composites that last year raised $4.3 million in seed financing. 
Per tradition, our gathering concludes with a virtual borrel (BYOB) where you and fellow alumni living in Geneva, Zurich and other parts of Switzerland will be mixed with each other to maximize interactions and stimulate conversations. Make sure to also bring some snacks and drinks for the borrel!

More about Chester Houwink - 9T Labs
Advancements in materials and robotics allow us to set audacious goals for our physical world. Surgical robotics, electric aircraft, smart wearables and space equipment will define the future of climate, our health and our social interactions. As a co-founder of 9T Labs, Chester is making the manufacturing of these structures possible by utilizing 3D printing. In his talk, he will share his insights of building a hardware start-up, the digitization of the global manufacturing landscape and new design latitudes.
