The Bridge by S-GE - CCI France - Business France

With the support of S-GE, Business France in Switzerland and the French-Swiss Chamber of Commerce (CCIFS) are jointly organizing a unique event in Switzerland, bridging the gap between start-ups/innovative SMEs and corporates.

Corporates often find it difficult to collaborate with innovative startups. The latter face a real challenge when it comes to identifying the decision-makers among the corporates with whom they would like to work. Le Bridge links these two types of actors on both sides of the border. For startups, Le Bridge represents an opportunity to pitch their technology to major international groups in three minutes such as DPD, Akka Technologies, Sita, Soladis, SGS and Froriep.

The program is subject to change. The event will take place onsite or in virtual mode, depending on the development of the coronavirus situation.

Thematic Workshop  Protecting the Consumer + Employee Data

In the age of big data, the digital economy and the digital world, one of the most critical components of online business is creating a trusted environment where potential customers can feel confident making their purchases online. Millions of people’s data, especially during online transactions on the internet, is shared by us all every day. This includes sensitive information like credit card numbers, personal identification numbers and login credentials which should be, but are not always, secure. Data security and privacy protection are essential for cybersecurity.

Event objectives: This workshop will provide participants with the knowledge and understanding of the most recent, critical cybersecurity challenges and difficulties in the e-commerce sector. This workshop aims to raise cyberspace security awareness and best practices worldwide to empower citizens with the knowledge of how to stay safe online and ensure more safe and secure internet spaces for all. By leveraging global expertise from different stakeholders in academic, private sectors and non-profit organisations, this panel will bring together a diverse set of experts to help you navigate yourself in cyberspace.

Trust Valley meets silicon Valley

Trust Valley meets Silicon Valley

Exploring the relationship between trust and digital transformation to address the digital challenges society is faced with today.


Join us on Wednesday, 24 March at 8am in San Francisco, and 4pm in Switzerland. REGISTER HERE


We live in complex times where exploring the most pressing questions at the crossroads of technology and humanity is  imperative for the future of our society. At the heart of this process, we find trust. Trust emerges as the backbone of a digital transformation that is needed to address the digital challenges society is faced with today. How do we build trust in complex times?  How do we approach trust as we design digital technologies? These are some of the pressing questions we will explore on Wednesday 24 March in the first edition of “Trust Valley meets Silicon Valley”.


“Trust Valley meets Silicon Valley” is an initiative bringing together the brightest minds and subject-matter experts from two leading global hubs in technology leadership and cybersecurity: Switzerland and the Bay Area in  the United States. What can Switzerland and the Bay Area learn from each other when trust is the key link between technology and society?


As the world’s humanitarian and internet governance capital, Switzerland hosts a rich digital trust and cybersecurity ecosystem such as the Trust Valley–an alliance supported by multiple public, private and academic players based in Switzerland.


This event is co-organized by swissnex San Francisco, Trust Valley, the Consulate General of Switzerland in San Francisco, and Switzerland Global Enterprise/Swiss Business Hub USA.
