Use Case: Look to Switzerland
The Ecosystem Map is taken from the impresive tech ecosystem that has been emering in Switzerland over the last few years.
In 2018, when Christian Rangen wrote the report on Building Switzerland’s Innovation Superclusters, he was introduced to a dynamic and rapidly growing tech ecosystem. Since then, the ecosystem has evolved in leaps and bounds, notably on access to and quality of the venture capital side.
Many countries, governments and ecossytems would benefit from «look to Switzerland»
You can find the excellent original, curated by SICTIC and Digital Switzerland here.
