The swissnex effect

If you talk to many of our alumni who are now finding success in North America, they’ll tell you that their benefit went beyond workshops, events, and meetings. When you work with us, you become part of the swissnex network – an international community of innovators in technology, academia, art, and beyond. We are a small group of partners that is invested in helping Swiss entrepreneurs. We understand the environment in which Swiss startups are created and the unique challenges they face in entering the North American market. Our partners are not siloed into their specific fields, but rather gain exposure across the many sectors in the swissnex network as they pursue their business goals. We maintain a deep connection not only to the North American innovation ecosystem, but also to the world’s leading research institutions, allowing us to observe emerging trends and tech from the front lines.

With a networked, cross-disciplinary team as our backbone, the swissnex staff has access, contacts, and expertise in technology, life sciences, research, design and communication.
