Digital Switzerland & BILANZ: Judith Häberli Nominated Among the Top 100 Digital Shapers 2023

For the eighth year in a row, BILANZ announced its selection of the top 100 most influential people in driving digitalization forward in Switzerland. Urban Connect’s Co-Founder and COO, Judith Häberli, was featured in the list as one of the 10 key “Mobilizers”, bringing mobility into the digital age.

What is a Digital Shaper?

Digital Shaper is a nomination to people who have made significant contributions to the digitalization of Switzerland in various sectors. Digital Switzerland describes Digital Shapers as “dedicated innovators who are committed to shaping a digital future that empowers us all.”

Digital Shapers was organized by BILANZ for the 8th consecutive year in partnership with Digital Switzerland, Handelszeitung, PME, and Innosuisse. First, hundreds of various leaders across Switzerland were nominated by the public on social media. Then, a Jury of eleven selected the top 10 digital pioneers in each of the 10 fields, such as “Mobilizers” or “eMedics”. Some of this year’s Jury included Mike Baur, Co-Founder and CEO of Serpentine Ventures Group and Swiss Startup Factory, Gabrielle Dobenecker, Head of Fundraising, Entrepreneurship & Industry relations at EMPA, and Karin Taheny, Chief Digital and Technology Officer of Switzerland Global Enterprise (S-GE).

Judith Häberli was featured in the selected Digital Shapers list in the “Mobilizers” category. She was recognized as a pioneer in bringing an innovative and technological approach to Switzerland’s corporate mobility. In an interview with Digital Switzerland, Judith noted her unique perspective on Switzerland’s potential impact on digital innovation:

“I think Switzerland is uniquely qualified to serve as a laboratory to systematically test new mobility concepts by virtue of its small size, diverse landscape, efficient public transport system, its dense network of roads and railways, its advanced level of digitalization, and its progressive and pragmatic regulatory approach.”
