The Vaud Economic Promotion is there to help the creation and development of local businesses and to support foreign companies in establishing themselves in the canton of Vaud.

Why we join

The canton of Vaud currently enjoys a cross-section of skills in today’s top digital technologies, including the Internet of Things, blockchain technology, artificial intelligence, big data, robotics, web platforms, e-commerce, cybersecurity, and machine learning. The canton of Vaud is a fertile breeding ground for new startups. It brings together optimal conditions for the emergence of new and innovative businesses. Out of the CHF 938 million in venture capital invested in Switzerland in 2017, around one-third went to young, Vaud-based companies. Other startups have succeeded in convincing the industrial sector to implement their innovations. Vaud’s core strength lies in creating interdisciplinarity within to day’s top digital technologies and identifying areas of state-of-the-art innovation.

As a result, we are thrilled to support the Digital Day in this effort to raise awareness among both entrepreneurs and citizens in regards to the digitalization of our society.
