Ralf Haller

My more than two decades work experience has spanned various marketing, project management and business development roles, based on my training as an electrical engineer and masters in Telecommunication Systems (Karlsruhe Institute of Technology).

My career started while at university, when I took an assistant role in the USA. Later, I worked as an IT project manager for large key account clients at CompuNet in Munich and also worked in Hong Kong supporting the Asian region.

This prompted my move to Silicon Valley where I lived for many years, working as a Product Manager for successful startups building some of the first data communication equipments in the market. (first gigabit ethernet router/switch)

Since 2001, I provide product marketing and business development support and have organised different high-tech business events in Switzerland.

I am the organiser of about 15 per year national and international high-tech trends, innovation, entrepreneurship and technology business events in Switzerland, among them:

+ Silicon Valley meets Switzerland, svms-event.ch

+ Startup-Nation Israel meets Switzerland, startup-nation.ch

+ Chinese-Swiss High-tech Summit, china-innovation.ch

I am also the founder and president of the first - not for profit - "High-Tech Connect suisse" association encouraging and inspiring high-tech business development.

I started teaching the course "Global Innovation Ecosystems" and others at universities and look forward doing more of these as I love sharing and discussing with smart minds of all ages and cultures.
