Meet the Team

As if you couldn’t tell from the photo, we at swissnex San Francisco are pretty excited to lead the program, “Swiss Academia and the Social Media Landscape.”

Over the last few weeks, we have exchanged emails with many of you, talked on the phone, or swapped news and relevant links through social media. But you may not know that much about us and what we do for Switzerland and for North America beyond this project. Here’s a short intro and some contact information for the team members dedicated to you and to the social media program.

About swissnex San Francisco

swissnex San Francisco is an initiative of Switzerland’s State Secretariat for Education and Research (SER), managed in cooperation with the Department of Foreign Affairs as an annex of the Consulate General of Switzerland in San Francisco.

A public-private venture, we are part of a network of outposts in Bangalore, Boston, Shanghai, and Singapore. Along with individual science and technology counselors around the world, we work on behalf of Switzerland to expand education, research, and innovation.

swissnex San Francisco is a platform for the exchange of knowledge and ideas in science, education, art, and innovation. Through public events and study tours, we highlight the best of Swiss and North American ingenuity and create opportunities for networking among our diverse group of professional contacts in the San Francisco Bay Area, Silicon Valley, and beyond. We offer workspace in the heart of downtown San Francisco and the resources to help international guests, start-ups, university outposts, entrepreneurs-in-residence, and other visitors succeed.

Our global perspective and local expertise allow swissnex San Francisco to anticipate and nurture fruitful collaborations and align the best academics, researchers, entrepreneurs, artists, and thought leaders so that relationships and partnerships can flourish. Working under several mandates, we also help build the presence of Swiss innovators on the world stage. We believe that unexpected outcomes can lead to the brightest achievements, and we encourage the cross-pollination of ideas through the many connections made at swissnex San Francisco.
