The future of Ontotext in the Basel Area.

Ontotext’s vision is to enable machines to interpret data and text, which empowers their customers to reveal more facts and relationships quickly and with less effort.

To extend its life sciences and healthcare footprint in Switzerland and Europe, Ontotext opened up an office in Basel.

The Basel Area is the perfect location because of its global impact and pioneering role in biotech, medtech, and digital health.

To make the move, Ontotext has teamed up with us.

We helped Ontotext find suitable premises, provided information on employee secondments in Switzerland, and made their move to the Basel Area as seamless as possible.

Selecting Basel Area as the location for our development in Switzerland and the DACH region will help Ontotext stay even closer to our customers and align our innovative products and solutions to the constantly growing and changing needs of the Life Sciences businesses we serve.
