The # 1 for doers from business, society and technology.
  • SME - OUR CHAMPIONS

    99.5% of all Swiss-based companies have less than 250 employees but create more than 60% of all job opportunities and an equally high proportion to the overall added value. Of course, we are speaking of local SMEs just like us. In order to remain competitive, digital transformation and new technologies need to be tackled proactively. We, ourselves an SME, speak from experience. The Digital Festival offers concrete recipes for practical application, so that you can start the next day with pragmatic implementation in everyday life and benefit from digitization.
