SwissNex is an innovative idea of bridging technology and science between two countries – the USA and Switzerland.  As a Swiss Native, I have been very involved in the various activities, particularly with the Venture Leaders.  These are 20 start-ups that each year get chosen by CTI in Switzerland to visit Boston.  Pascal and the SwissNex team host this group and bring Boston area coaches and experts in to provide feedback around fund raising, scaling and entering the US market.

The Boston Globe had a write up last month titledDiplomacy opens a portal to profit- Boston’s consulates focus on business”  talking about the dynamic consul general Pascal Marmier and how other consulates are now creating similar venues. Pascal is a new breed of consuls, with energy and  innovative thinking abound. He is also the networking king par-excellence.  We are very lucky to have him as our consul general.

To brag just a little more, Switzerland ranked #1 in Global Competitiveness by the World Economic Forum.  Checkout the report:   The Global Competitiveness Report 2009-2010
