“For startup entrepreneurs it is important that we shape an investment environment in Switzerland that is competitive on a global scale.”

Christina Kehl, Co-Founder & Managing Director Swiss Finance Startups, has been actively advocating startup interests over the last years. On behalf of SFS in May 2016 she invited Johann Schneider-Ammann to join Switzerland’s first Swiss Fintech & Digitization Day. The President of the Federal Council at the time sat down for a roundtable discussion with startup founders and pioneers in digitization.

Today Federal Council Johann Schneider-Ammann embraces digitization and recognizes fintech as a valuable pillar on the financial market. Switzerland is determined to keep up in the digital era.
