Verticals

Adding an industry focus to strengthen Switzerland as key player in the global markets.

digitalswitzerland will now include four new topic areas, called Verticals. The Verticals complement our existing activities by adding an industry focus. The aim is to identify new flagship projects and further develop existing ones within these industries that highlight Switzerland’s leading role in technology and innovation – we call these projects Matterhorns.

Through the Verticals, our members join interdisciplinary teams and bring their expertise and thought-leadership to co-create concrete, effective and sustainable projects that will shape the future of these industries in Switzerland.
Verticals:

  • Fintech & Crypto: Gerhard Lohmann (SwissRe), Luka Müller (MME Legal) and Patrick Oltramare (Swisscaution)
  • Life Science & Food – tbd
  • Infrastructure: Andreas Meyer (SBB)
  • Technology: Marianne Janik (Microsoft) and Edouard Bugnion (EPFL)

We are just launching these new industry-focused Verticals and look forward to sharing the first successful projects soon.
