Speaking of connectivity, what do you think of platforms like Impact Hub Zurich that support start-ups in various fields?
The exciting thing about the Hub concept is that many of the young businesses working there are thinking beyond the tech aspects. Impact Hub is a member of swisscleantech, we share their conviction that while technology itself is important, it's just as important to properly embed technology. Whenever it is, we find that less suddenly becomes more.
You put all your own energy into working on energy efficiency and the energy revolution. Where do you go in Zurich to take a break and recharge your batteries?
Our offices are very centrally located and yet you can go to the Limmat, the Schanzengraben or the Sihl in five minutes. There are trees, plants, a little greenery – all of which is important for recharging your batteries. That is what makes it so wonderful about Zurich – it’s the perfect blend of global city and village.
