From our community to you.

“Like all countries in the world, Switzerland is facing the challenges of digital revolution. Transformation processes affect virtually every industry sector. The digitalswitzerland initiative aims to make our country, with its many advantages, talent and possibilities, a center of digital innovation in Europe. We cordially invite sponsors and mentors to join us and become active partners in shaping the digital future of Switzerland.”

Marc Walder CEO Ringier, President of the Steering Committee and initiator of digitalswitzerland

“Switzerland plays a leading role in many industries worldwide and is the number one in some of them. Nevertheless, in the age of digital transformation, we must pay heed to developing our position, especially in the area of digitization as well as to remaining a competitor. Targeted measures in the fields of economic and regulatory policy, education and human resources, finance, and promoting innovation create suitable conditions to further increase the location’s attractiveness for founders, young talent, digital entrepreneur and investors from around the world. With my commitment, I want to contribute to the development of the best possible overall conditions for our growing digital economy.”

Corine MauchMayor of Zurich

“The Swiss economy is highly innovative and internationally plays a leading role in many areas. Nevertheless, we have to come up with many new ideas, if we want to strengthen and expand this position further. Concrete, cross-sector commitment and interaction between personalities, companies and organizations are the key element for the successful digital transformation of Switzerland. Our commitment at digitalswitzerland enables us to achieve a great deal – as members, sponsors, donors and founders. We have so many possibilities. Now, it’s up to us to turn them into success.”

Ruedi NoserSenate (FDP, ZH)

“Today's markets are fundamentally changed by digitization. Companies and organizations need new ideas to adapt their business models or to invent new business models. To do so, they have to unlock untapped potential and use it properly. It is vital for them to gain access to innovation ecosystems – all over the world and in Switzerland. Thus, new forms of collaboration become essential. digitalswitzerland is an excellent vehicle to help established companies to connect with digital pioneers and to innovate their business models.”

Marcel StalderCEO EY Switzerland

“ETH Zurich has become a major center for innovation. Our polytechnic university offers a fertile soil for founders who want to further develop their projects in cooperation with our professors and specialists and to launch spin-offs. With that said, I believe strongly that digital education offerings are important, if we want to make our economy and society fit for the future.”
