The Network

platinn - the Western Switzerland Innovation Platform - relies on a strong local structure of Cantonal antennas, a network of accredited coaches and its own headquarters in Fribourg.

Cantonal antennas

The seven cantonal antennas of platinn maintain active contacts with local companies. They organize and coordinate the interventions of the various service providers, such as platinn and its coaching program.

The independent cantonal antennas cooperate as a network in the frame of a strategic partnership.

Within each antenna, Key Account Managers are the first line contact persons for businesses. They establish a link with the appropriate service providers and do customer follow-ups.

Your cantonal contact points

platinn maintains proximity with businesses, thanks to the cantons and their cantonal antennas and their Key Account Managers.
