Business Cocktail
Cocktail des entreprises

In Val-de-Travers, business actors work in a meaningful way by developing co-operation patterns to ensure the future of the region and of its know-how. The most emblematic example of this state of mind is the creation of the “Fleurier Quality Foundation” in 2004, which stems from a joint project to establish most demanding criteria throughout the world dedicated to the certification of finished watches. 

Encouraging the search for synergies and concentrating forces to build tomorrow: those are also the ambitions supporting the platform of business meetings set up by the community.

7 to 9 a.m. business cycle ("Cycle des 7 à 9 de l'économie")

Twice a year the entire business community is invited to breakfast from 7 to 9 a.m. to single out the topics and determine where new partnerships are to be developed. 

In 2011, public-private sector groups bringing all involved actors together were created to work out concrete proposals to be carried out. The two topics developed were aimed at promoting the region and its businesses both inwards and outwards and at defining synergies with the purpose of favouring the creation of new jobs for trainees. The years 2012, 2013 and 2014 were dedicated to the implementation and follow-up of these proposals (to be downloaded in french under le recueil de propositions).

Year 2015 will introduce a deeper reflection into promotion of image of the region of which fruits will be presented and shared during the first meeting of 2016.

Don't hesitate to contact us to receive invitations to our meetings.
