Word from the team


Dear reader,

In spite of the current threat to business activities, Switzerland is performing well according to recently published reports and rankings. The latest Global Innovation Index, for example, ranks Switzerland as the most innovative economy in the world in 2022 and the IFJ study shows that 37,092 new companies were registered in the Swiss Commercial Register in the first nine months of this year. More on this and on the latest fundraising stories in our "featured news" section.

Speaking of success stories, read our exclusive interview with Emile de Rijk, CEO of EPFL Spin-off SWISSto12, who recently landed a new deal with satellite telecommunications service provider Intelsat.

And don’t forget about our latest licensing opportunities. You may find there the perfect technology for your future venture...

Happy reading,

The TTO Team
