Alumni story: #kickstarters17 Adjoint opens a Swiss office

It is less than a year ago that the US and UK based startup Adjoint took part in the Kickstart Accelerator program. Within the last months, a lot has happened for the FinTech company – and now, they open their first Swiss office. Here is Adjoint`s update:

In 2017, Adjoint was selected to participate in Kickstart Accelerator in Zurich. During the program, we were able to collaborate with powerful multinational organizations and establish valuable partnerships on the Swiss market. Within the following months after the program, we have worked hard on further developing this network and the strategy has paid off: Some weeks ago, we have been able to open our very first operation in Switzerland. With our office in Zug, we have officially launched our presence in Switzerland.

The new location of the company will represent the fourth major hub of our rapidly growing organization. The three other office hubs include our US headquarters in Boston and Houston as well as our UK location in London. We are dedicated and looking forward to expanding our expertise and relationships throughout the Swiss ecosystem. 

“It is very exciting to see Adjoint opening their Swiss office. I’m looking forward to seeing them grow their presence in Switzerland. In my eyes, Adjoint is a great asset for the FinTech and blockchain communities worldwide and in Switzerland”, says Katka Letzing, Kickstart Program Co-Lead and FinTech & Crypto Vertical Lead.

In addition to the new Swiss office, Adjoint welcomes an incredibly talented and experienced financial services expert, András Miklós. András is a master in design thinking and certified fintech professional who will lead the Swiss business development efforts for Adjoint. Prior to joining the Adjoint team, András was managing FX and interest rate risk exposure for large corporations in Hungary, after which he joined Credit Suisse International Wealth Management in Zurich to drive part of their strategic project portfolio.

Looking ahead, Adjoint will be joining the global treasury community at the International EuroFinance conference in Geneva from 26-28 September, 2018. Here, we will introduce our strategic treasury management solution to Swiss-based and global treasurers. The consolidated, multi-currency and multi-bank account is enabled by Adjoint’s private & permissioned blockchain technology.
