How are we connected?

Since establishing an office of swissnex in the Big Apple in 2013, we have helped major Swiss media organizations connect with the US’s major media players, from established powerhouses like CNN, NBC, and the New York Times, to alternative players like Buzzfeed, Vice Media, NowThis, Quartz, and Civil Media. All the while, we have maintained our strong links to academia, with such research centers as Columbia University's Brown Institute and the Tow Center for Digital Journalism.  As of result of in-depth conversations under Chatham House rules, site visits, and inquiries into the challenges and opportunities made possible by swissnex, Swiss companies have worked to rethink product offerings and strategies.
