Change the world. Make lives better. Create new jobs.

Silicon Valley has and is doing all three of the above.

“Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do!”
– Steve Jobs

And while some talk about the challenges (housing costs) and backlash (privacy and monopoly discussions), for us it is absolutely clear that Silicon Valley will remain the place where largest high-tech business success stories and jobs are created and from where new technology and application waves will keep shaping our futures.

We will again bring some of the most visible companies and key people for the first time to Switzerland.

You can expect a firework of stories on high-tech trends with focus on content and relevance.

This event was the first one who brought Silicon Valley to Switzerland and we will continue to do so in the most authentic and innovative way possible - organized by people who have been there and done it actually.
