Through constructive engagement with global innovation ecosystems High-Tech Connect works to learn stakeholders requirements, formulate Swiss innovation ecosystem requirements and address these with the authorities and government to help Switzerland prioritize and ultimately maximize its success now and in the future.
High-Tech Connect holds several events. There are two types of events: global innovation ecosystem exchanges (with Silicon Valley, Israel, China, Europe, etc.) and high-tech trend events. We understand the value of learning from each other’s success stories, first-hand experiences and networking. Our events enable members to keep up-to-date with what the global high-tech trends will bring and how they can benefit from and be a part of it.
Innovation financing has become a challenge for many Swiss startups. This is particularly true for follow on investments. Our network and that of our partners can advise our members on a consultancy basis..
Through international business development trips to Silicon Valley, Israel, China and other places, our members can learn first-hand about latest high-tech trends and innovation ecosystems. These trips are not mere sightseeing or educational, but focus on specific business topics such as e.g. security startups in Israel, or leading startups in Silicon Valley seeking EMEA headquarters (possible in Switzerland) and others.
Most Swiss high-tech companies never successfully expand outside of Switzerland. Our experts advise and offer first-hand support for ambitious SMEs and startups who want to become global success stories.
Through its own courses and in partnership with others, High-Tech Connect offers a selection of courses designed to enable its members to learn what it takes to benefit from the latest high-tech trends, as well as how to grow a high-tech company globally to compete with the biggest success stories.
