Patrick Maillard created the IMMOMIG AG in 2004. His motto is “Never stop believing in success!". All beginning is difficult, we all know. Despite of all, the young company founder won with his startup the contest "Venture of leader" in 2007. The organization "Venture Lab" organizes a contest in universities every year, to identify and to reward the best startup ideas. So our CEO had the possibility to undertake a journey to Boston together with approx. 15 other startups. Today Mr. Maillard is even in the jury and can decide who may participate in this journey and who the winner with the best idea is.
