Newsletter 03.05.2016

Dear ladies,

You are about to discover what we have been cooking in April, which will be ready to enjoy in the next few weeks.

We had a stand at the Women’s Expo on 10th April, which was very well attended by interested (and very interesting!) women. A lot of curiosity about each other, questions and answers, ideas exchanges have made that day a special one. As a result, our community has become bigger, now including women from the Bern, Freiburg and Zurich regions. If you haven’t logged in recently, do so and discover many new women, who may share your interests and passions and whom you can contact in no time.

All our registered members have enabled us to organize the first Our Swiss Business Brainstorming Event on 11.06.2016 in Bern. This is something you don’t want to miss! It will be an exciting happening, with brainstorming groups built around your passions and needs. No matter if you are just starting to consider the perspective of creating your own business in Switzerland, or you have already founded your company. We have a stimulating offer for you!

During the event, we will be supported by Beatrice Wespi, a Swiss professional and networker in and around women and business. If you understand German, check out her websites and Facebook Group:

Moreover, we are keeping up our efforts to make ourselves known, especially within the international community. The two following events will take place in May / July:

17.05.2016 in Bern: Women and Business in CH

Where: Bruder Klaus Church Center, Ostring 1, Cheminee Room

Time: 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Hosted by: International Club of Bern

Cost: free for ICB members

If you are not an ICB member and would like to attend, please contact Graham Tritt (G.Tritt@gmx.net).

 

5. or 6. July (TBC) in Zürich: Building a Business in Switzerland made easier

Hosted by: Professional American Women of Zürich networking group (PAWZ)

If you would like to participate, please contact Hollyn Keller (hollyn.keller@2pluxx.ch).

 

Last, stirring news: we are collaborating with www.waxidea.com, an online platform thought to help entrepreneurs and creative minds develop their ideas into businesses.

On Waxidea you can work on your business ideas, get feedback from experts, find co-founders, brainstorm and discuss either privately or openly, complete your business canvas, and and and… The platform has users from all over the world, but it is specially thought for the EU and the team behind Waxidea is partially based in Switzerland. Most importantly, Switzerland will be the first “local community” we will develop together!

This should become the virtual discussion place for Our Swiss Business members, as a complement to face-to-face events. Look at it and start using it if you wish (it’s free!). It should be quite straightforward to create your idea and start working on it. Furthermore, we will be holding hands-on sessions and tutorials during our next face-to-face events. Of course, Waxidea team and I also stay at your disposal if you need any help. The platform will further evolve in the next months, so please share your feedback with me.

Thanks again for your interest in Our Swiss Business and I am looking forward to seeing you at any of the next events or on Waxidea.

Gretel
