IT professionals make a significant contribution to ensuring that Swiss companies are globally successful and competitive and remain so in the future. The objective of FREELANCERS is to provide collective solutions for the administrative, legal and technical issues each of its members share, but are inefficient to solve individually.

In accordance with our motto “Together we are strong”, we want to gain access to information, contacts and contracts, that, alone, we might not be able to reach.
In line with our vision, we have realised the following activities and contracts for the benefit of our members:
- networking, communication and collaboration
