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.

CEO of AxessImpact SA, Yves Carnazzola recognised the benefits and opportunities of Crans-Montana, in particular the exceptional business eco-system combined with the proximity of the region's top schools. This start-up active in fin-tech places sustainable development at the centre of its interests and its activities, in particular through an eco-blockchain which allows the creation of transparent protocols on a collaborative platform to bring together all the actions undertaken on a project. By attesting to the authenticity and traceability of carbon certificates, AxessImpact SA aims to improve the confidence that companies place in actions that meet the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals and thus promote green projects.
