EXPERT SERIES: Moving Switzerland’s Digitization Forward


This episode brings us together with Nicolas Burer and Matthias Zwingli from Digital Switzerland, an organisation that comprises more than 130 leading companies, organisations, academia and politics to achieve its mission to establish Switzerland as a leading European digital-innovation hub. Working with startups is an integral part of this mission which is why I was super excited to hear they would join us for an episode of our expert series. Nicolas Burer is the Managing Director of Digital Switzerland and Swiss Business Angel of the Year for 2018, and Matthias Zwingli connects startups, corporates, investors and hubs as a Startup Ecosystem Builder. In this compact half hour interview we covered questions on dealing with business angels, working with corporates and more. IF YOU LIKE THIS PODCAST, GIVE US A FIVE STAR REVIEW ON APPLE PODCAST.
