Overlooking the Rhone Valley at an altitude of 1,495 meters, Crans-Montana offers a breathtaking view of the region's iconic peaks, from the Matterhorn to Mont Blanc. While the alpine city is widely known for its tourist appeal through its wild nature, clean air and almost permanent sunshine, it is in the process of becoming a major economic hub with international reach. Its main year-round economic sectors are medical, education and civil engineering.

Start-ups specialising in new technologies, med-tech, education and deeptech, have established themselves in Crans-Montana, Icogne and Lens. This new haven of innovation offers entrepreneurs a unique location with all the infrastructure necessary for the development of innovative tech projects, and an idyllic environment for their families.

William King is a Sillicon Valley entrepreneur and investor specializing in the health sciences. He is the CEO and co-founder of Alpine X. Gaming, crypto-currency and med-tech are the three poles of this futuristic start-up. A true technological hub, but also an education and training centre, Alpine X invites you to share ideas and projects in its coworking space, which functions as an incubator and a gas pedal of innovations. Alpine X is also a major economic and societal project that will create hundreds of jobs and build a city that is both futuristic and environmentally friendly.
