Dear entrepreneurial friends,
This list has been rather calm recently. However, I still have see
entrepreneurs from Switzerland interested in expanding into the US.
Recently, we welcomed 15 promising (would be) entrepreneurs in the context
of a program called NETS (new entrepreneurs in technology and science).
Supported by the Gebert Ruef foundation, these young people with scientific
backgrounds come to Boston for visits, talks, networking and 5 days of
academic training at Babson U.

The reason for this email is that I am helping a Swiss magazine (Market)
prepare an article on Swiss hightech startups, in the IT and nanotech
fields, active in the US. They would like to profile companies with
innovative technologies. I have listed the ones I know below, but would be
grateful for any other ideas you might have.
Enjoy the summer!
