Connecting individuals and communities through business and/or volunteering


SwissLinked is the safest and most trusted networking platform for professionals. We verify the identity of every new member, manually and one by one. We are proud to say that we do not have any fictive account! And this is way more than any other online networking platform can tell.

We offer on- and offline possibilities to connect with likeminded individuals and businesses.


What we offer to SwissLinked members:

1) Networking Online- in safe environment; 2) Regular Offline Events; 3) Possibility of volunteering in our CommunityLinks charity; 4) Professional support; 5) Membership Card; 6) Blog, to direct traffic to our members’ websites.


1) Networking Online- in safe environment

There are several SwissLinked forums to discuss and to connect: -Job Market; -Speakers’s Corner; -Events; -Professional Groups.... and many more!

PM: Possibility of sending private messages to other members.


SwissLinked Rules- nothing more than common sense In order to become a member of SwissLinked some rules need to be upheld in the aim of guaranteeing the privacy of our members and the well being of the professional platform: -An individual cannot be anonymous, we will check the picture and personal information uploaded onto the website. Our members can invite their friends or business partners to SwissLinked, we feel that we don't need to check the identity of new members introduced in this manner. -Our forums are not moderated, but to ensure that the forum environment is comfortable for all members, the Webmasters keep a diligent eye on threads. -Stick to factual and personal information in your profile. We would love to see an appropriate picture of you in your profile. No other pictures are accepted.


2) Regular Offline Events SwissLinked events are always different, we make sure that every member finds events to attend! We organize: - Afterwork drinks; - Roundtable discussions; - Workshops; - Zug Job Fairs; - Runaways;

- Parties; - Earth Matters! symposiums; - Networking lunches; - Events with keynote speakers - School Matters! discussions


3) CommunityLinks Being part of the community of our area very important but today in Switzerland this is not easy. We all feel that there are two parallel societies coexisting; the foreigners (25% of the Swiss population) and the Swiss without points of contact. Our goal is to build few bridges, create few integrated islands, bringing the the two communities together. We believe that the best way to do it, is through work and mostly working with children. We have different initiatives supporting different groups of children. We would like to give an opportunity to the locals to benefit from the ever growing expat community.

Not everybody would like to pursue a professional career during the years spent in Switzerland, but everybody would like to make a difference.


4) Professional Career Support We hand you the best solution for helping trailing partners to start a professional life in Switzerland. The training consists of 5 modules: •

Swiss History, Life and Culture:  we'll discuss geographical, linguistic and cultural specialties which influence the society, political and business life.

5) Membership Card

The SwissLinked Card is an important additional service offered to SwissLinked members.

Our card will help you to acquire new costumers and to ensure their fidelity.

6) Swiss-Biz-Blog

SwissLinked has many small business members, who find it difficult to run an interesting and intriguing blog on their own. There is simply not enough time in one day to write or not enough stories to tell. We all know by now that writing a blog drives traffic to the website and gives a good exposure to businesses. We put 1+1 together and started a collective blog, where every business member can contribute. The reader will always find something to read here, one day one SwissLinked member, the other somebody else will have
