TRANSFORM INTO THE DIGITAL AGE
We transform Switzerland's economy into the digital age by generating big ideas and bridge the gap between technology and entrepreneurship.
MAKE SWITZERLAND WIN IN THE SECOND HALFTIME OF DIGITIZATION
Switzerland has lost in the first halftime of the global digital revolution in which entire industries have been disrupted and even replaced.
During the first halftime the goal was to depict the world in a virtual manner.
The second halftime evolves around added value. Switzerland must understand the mechanisms behind digitization and adapt to the new rules that come hand in hand with this revolution.
For the past 15 years of working in the internet industry, we have observed a consistent pattern of information silos across all industries within the Swiss economy.
This outdated and conservative approach impedes these companies' innovation and growth processes.
With an unprecedented speed and force, digitalization poses challenges that have caused industries to be disrupted, reinvented, and even wiped out.
This is where Chapter Switzerland comes into play. We facilitate and encourage cross-industrial exchange and create an environment in which new ideas are born & executed.
By participating, companies can keep up with the rapidly evolving digital landscape and become industry leaders.
