Why Switzerland

Technology location


Switzerland is a highly industrialized technology location with leading research facilities and access to highly qualified specialists. Leading clusters in the life sciences and engineering sectors promote the use of new, disruptive technologies and allow the rapid introduction of new applications in an open market in the heart of Europe. 

We help companies that are considering internationalization or are already globally active to exploit Switzerland's potential as a location for technological innovation and future growth. Thanks to versatile high-tech clusters in a manageable space, companies in Switzerland are in an excellent position to establish close contact with market leaders and innovation drivers and test new applications in an open market or optimize processes.

Together with the Swiss Business Hubs and the cantonal partners in Switzerland, we have set ourselves the goal of sustainably and efficiently expanding new business models and innovative applications and promoting Switzerland as a country for the global tech community. We focus here on the future technologies of artificial intelligence, robotics, personalized health, blockchain and advanced manufacturing.


Artificial intelligence
As a neutral country, Switzerland can draw on strong ethical values and a long tradition of serving other nations well. We focus on the best that AI has to offer, without neglecting business. Cognitive intelligence meets Swiss ethics in key industries such as healthcare, financial services and mobility.

Switzerland is considered the “Silicon Valley of Robotics” for a good reason: we develop robots of the highest quality and precision — swissmade. Our liberal regulation also allows drones to be tested without complications, making us pioneers of a digitalized aviation system.

Personalized health
Thanks to our traditional strength in life sciences, we are well prepared for the new era in which data and healthcare will interact. Health will become personalized and digitized.

Decentralization is not only the core component of blockchain, it is also part of our political system’s DNA.
This and the openness of our authorities make us the logical choice for the further development of blockchain and DLT in a tokenized economy.

Advanced manufacturing
We are world champions in efficiency. Our country is like a smart mini-factory in the heart of Europe, with a globally networked supply chain. The ideal technology location for high-quality production facilities to reach millions of customers.

Innovation happens when different industries, technologies and people come together to create something new. Let's make it happen in Switzerland!
