Swiss’Up, the podcast on innovation and entrepreneurship
We meet and interview the people making Switzerland the most innovative country in the world.
The aim of our podcast is to Share Knowledge, Inspire others and shine a light on the vibrant Swiss start-up and Innovation ecosystem
Switzerland is a bold, innovative and cognizant country, that’s home to some of the world’s leading international organisations. With a very strong and highly educated talent pool, Switzerland is a pioneer in biotech, machinery, engineering, research, finance and it is famed for independent thinkers and for its democratic society.
We aim to dive into the various technology clusters located around the country, such as the Crypto-Valley in Zug, the small Silicon Valley in Lausanne and the Engineering hub in Zurich, which allow many startups to grow and develop their activities in Switzerland and around the world.
We are curious to meet in-house innovators, forward-thinking researchers, supporters of the startup ecosystem and founders who are looking to disrupt markets. All with the aim of creating an idea that will help define the future of technology.
