Dear Reader

There is a lot going on at digitalswitzerland. Unfortunately we are not (yet) very quick on our feet with keeping you in the loop on all things digitalswitzerland. We want to change this and as of now, we will send out this newsletter on a bi-weekly basis.

For the same reason we ramped up our blog content tremendously and invite you to visit our website more regularly.

Send us your feedback anytime and please spread the word and send more subscribers our way! We'll keep at it.
