Spark Works' Innovation Map 2020 highlighting the innovation enablers in Zürich
Zürich is known for many things, but innovation is not high on the list. Nevertheless, few cities in the world offer such a fertile ground for innovation as Zürich. World leading universities, top companies from across industries, a thriving startup ecosystem and a highly diverse and multilingual society. We believe Zürich to be perfectly positioned as the world's leading innovation city.
This map features some of the organisations that spark innovation across, or at the intersection of design, technology and business.

We live in a world where change shapes everything around us. At the same time, we are globally witnessing the impact of a pandemic.
