Swiss Start-Up Factory has announced its latest partnership with Fusion to provide a secure connection between the Swiss Company and its French counterpart. As top service providers of independent accelerators, both companies have made the bold step to forge a formidable partnership to achieve set goals and objectives. The inbuilt accelerators act as a stepping stone to promote the development of startups through prototyping and beta testing before serving the market needs.
The Fintech program is expected to headline the agenda of the comprehensive meeting as well as other ICT topics. Additionally, the tech giants intend to solicit cooperation with universities, mentor exchange programs and shared working space for startups.
Mr. Guillaume Dubray, Founder of Fintech Fusion, has hailed the digital transformation sweeping across the nation. As a leading provider in the IT industry, Switzerland is in pole position to retain and attract new entrepreneurs to spur ICT development in the State. Startups have an array of choices of development programs from coaching platforms to Startup Hubs.
Due to the linguistic variety and regional separation between the two countries, Swiss Start-Up Factory has deemed it necessary to capitalize on such strengths and resources to promote business growth. Such sentiments were echoed by the company’s co-Founder and Managing Partner, Mike Baur, during the announcement ceremony. The partnership is the first of its kind that rises above geographical and linguistic barriers to foster entrepreneurship between the two firms.
