"Connecting Silicon Alley with Swiss science, education and innovation"
Established as a satellite office of swissnex Boston in Manhattan, the New York Outpost pursues the overall mission of connecting the dots between Switzerland and North America in science, education and innovation, with a focus on the Greater New York City area
With the wealth of the experience of swissnex Boston - who pioneered science diplomacy in the early 2000's - the New York Outpost aims at leveraging the multiple dimensions of the fast growing ecosystem of the Silicon Alley to diversify its services to Swiss innovation practitioners on the American East Coast.
Fully integrated in the structure of swissnex Boston, we act as a platform for exchange of knowledge and expertise with an initial focus on technology entrepreneurship and higher education, through our partnership with ETH Board and CTI, the Swiss Commission for Technology and Innovation.

We also collaborate closely with Swiss partner institutions in New York City - especially the Consulate General of Switzerland - around public diplomacy initiatives enhancing the Swiss excellence in science, research and innovation.
