Launch of Challenge Programme
Digitalswitzerland launched the “Challenge” programme with the support of Engagement Migros. The goal of “Challenge” was, as it still is today with Leap, to launch groundbreaking digitisation projects through collaboration. The programme pursued a bottom-up approach where forward-thinking innovators spearheaded ambitious multi-stakeholder pilot projects. Several projects in today’s Leap ecosystem can trace their origins back to the “Challenge” programme, which is a testament to the courage and vision of these bold innovators.
Launch of Verticals Programme
Digitalswitzerland concurrently initialised a program called “Verticals”. It followed a more top-down approach to collaboration by forming sector-specific working groups, consisting of digitalswitzerland members. Its aim was to convene relevant stakeholders to close the gaps and address pain points in specific industries stemming from the advance of digitisation. These teams of leaders have built a solid foundation, which we still use to this day to launch multi-stakeholder pilot projects.
Launch of Leap Platform
Digitalswitzerland launched Leap, which combines the best elements of the “Challenge” and “Vertical” programmes. By harmonising the bottom-up and top-down approach, Leap’s collaborative innovation process is unique and backed by several years of experience. Today, we use it to mobilise digitalswitzerland members, and other organisations in the Swiss ecosystem, to unlock collaborative potential and build forward-thinking and sustainable solutions. Therein, we continue to work tirelessly to refine our approach and expand our offerings to maximise the value we create for the economy and society.
