Event reviews

“Overall the event had a great combination of live demonstration and various viewpoints for esports. It was great to combine players, casters, team owners, sponsor and organizer perspectives in one session.”

– Heinrich Zetlmayer, Active Investor & Board Member, ESL

Great opportunity to learn from the best in their field with many international experienced speakers.
I particularly enjoy the fact that experts bring their global view and experience to a Swiss level. The audience engages in interactive sessions. Everyone learns.
The bridge between Silicon Valley and Switzerland is very well executed by the organizers
This is a must attend event in Switzerland!Victor Bergonzoli, Co-Founder, Dartfish
I really liked the event. It was a great opportunity to exchange views on technological developments from various perspectives (technology, legal, social etc.), and to think ahead of what will come with AI. Tragically, the deadly accident with the Uber car just two days before reminded us how important such discussion is. Only a deep understanding of the issues at stake will enable us to properly frame the great opportunities that lie ahead of us!

“A vibrating experience about vision, passion and culture surrounded by startups, technology and ideas. Or like Heraclitus stated: there is nothing permanent except change!”

Terrence Schweizer, Chief Digital Officer, Bison IT Services

“Silicon Valley Meets Switzerland offers participants in Switzerland an easy access to gain an insight into emerging technologies and their impact on society, industries and the future at-large.”

Siddhartha Arora, IT Solution Senior Architect, IBM Innovation Center

“Was an inspiring event with an highly engaged audience. Appreciated the discussion very much.”

Roland Bischofberger, Vice President Corporate Affairs, UPC Switzerland

“I appreciated the discussions about highly automated driving a lot. The esports session was interesting news out of the box.”

– Felix Eberli, Department Head, Supercomputing Systems AG

Die Veranstaltung zeigte die Perspektiven Forschung (industriell wie akademisch) und Wirtschaft anhand konkreter Businesses (E-Sports oder E-Mobility und Self-Driving Cars) auf. Das Entwicklungspotential erscheint riesig und transferierbar in unsere Breitengrade, insbesondere wenn wir nicht das Modell “Silicon Valley” kopieren, sondern unsere internationale Stärke als Innovations- top Ausbildungsstandort klar nutzen. Die UZH bietet dafür exzellente Bedingungen.

 Prof. Dr. Harald Gall, Dean of the Faculty of Business, Economics and Informatics, University of Zurich

Thanks for coming and we are looking forward to seeing you at other events.R. Haller IT Marketing & High-tech Connect Suisse
