Arteco Services USA LLC

We love the business of innovation!

We support companies for their internationalization and market entry strategies for the Americas, and to develop their innovation strategies and methods. We do this out of San Francisco, the heart of Silicon Valley.

Our principal, Gert Christen's experience includes corporate innovation projects, founding the world's first smart phone App stores for a global technology company, and running startup incubators in Switzerland.

He has been named one of the 100 Digital Shapers of Switzerland and was awarded Switzerland's highest marketing award for founding the largest event for the startup ecosystem. He led the BlueLion Incubator and Startzentrum in Zurich, creating successful startup incubation programs and one of the first innovation programs matching large companies with innovative startups.

Back in California since 2016, he has been building innovation programs for public organizations in high tech areas such as smart city initiatives and self-driving cars.

He earned his M.B.A. at Southern Methodist University’s Cox School of Business in Dallas, Texas, USA, followed by post-graduate work at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne and at the Zurich University of Teacher Education.
