Innovation Consulting: How it Works
Avaloq Case Study: Linking to Silicon Valley Innovation
Silicon Valley is the hotspot for developing tech products that fit customer needs, almost above all else. This is a guiding principle for financial startups here such as SigFig and Robinhood, as well as for big tech companies like Facebook and Lending Club who are also jumped into the financial services game in the form of electronic money (Facebook) or lending (Lending Club).
So it’s no surprise that in 2015, banking solutions provider Avaloq began a partnership with swissnex San Francisco to aid them in identifying financial tools to keep pace with the digital disruption in the banking industry, often referred to as FinTech. With the swissnex San Francisco partnership, in which swissnex provides regular reporting on the players and trends in the industry, Avaloq is establishing a strong link to the Silicon Valley and its innovation ecosystem.
Digital Campus Case Study: Global, Digital Presence
The Digital Campus, a swissnex San Francisco initiative, provides Swiss higher education community with the latest knowledge and best practices to leverage new technologies for the benefit of their institutions and students.
The membership program offers all of the tools and support necessary for Swiss academia to fully embrace new technologies through customized trainings, a growing community of higher education professionals in Switzerland, and by operating as a gateway to the Silicon Valley. The Digital Campus offers resources, trainings, trend scouting, study tours, and a community of peers and provides benchmarking and consulting on a case-by-case basis, including platform analysis and, for swissuniversities.ch, a web audit.
