In this way, we can offer our participants an even better experience,” explains Sette Sports Managing Director Raphael Meyer.
Bruno Schenk, CEO of Atos Switzerland, is a keen cyclist himself. "Business decision-makers can learn a lot from sport," says Schenk. “Both require a vision first, then discipline, practice, perseverance and the ability to learn from mistakes – but ultimately also trust.” Schenk explains the partnership with Sette Sports AG as follows: “Our values fit together perfectly. Both of us not only want to improve technology, but also create development opportunities for people by combining mental strength and leadership skills with sustainability. For us at Atos Switzerland, it is important not only to have a partnership with the Swiss Racing Academy, but also to get in direct contact with the many thousands of amateur athletes and fans. Therefore, Sette Sports is the perfect partner for us to drive innovation and further develop technologies and people.”
