Outpost Innovation Programs

Swisscom Outpost holds the keys to the doors of Silicon Valley’s most innovative companies and reputable people. The Outpost Innovation Programs open doors for you to benefit from unique technology insights, focused training and organized networking in one of the world’s top innovation ecosystems. To get the most out of your Silicon Valley experience, Swisscom Outpost presents five immersion programs of different purposes, profiles and durations.

Why Silicon Valley

Digitalization and its disruptive nature are forcing companies around the world to find new and fast ways to innovate in order to secure a fair share of the changing economy. For European companies without direct access to path-breaking innovation networks however, it is a great challenge to successfully innovate due to the lack of quality benchmarks, research and collaboration opportunities with future-oriented and versatile partners. Silicon Valley remains the world’s innovation capital, giving rise to inspiring visionaries, cutting-edge technologies, unicorn startups and pioneering powerhouses like Google, Apple, Facebook, Genentech, SpaceX, Flex and many more.

Why the Outpost Innovation Programs are Right for You

Swisscom Ecosystem Access

Swisscom is well connected within the Silicon Valley ecosystem. The Outpost Innovation Programs are an invitation to connect to this ecosystem and to discover and build upon the newest technology trends, operation methods and an eager culture of innovation acceleration.
