To encourage Vaud's budding entrepreneurs, we take ten students to Silicon Valley every year where they spend a week soaking up the region's vibrant startup culture.
Every year we provide essential funding to a humanitarian project carried out by a Vaud-based organization. The projects are selected by a group of BCV employees, who also follow up on implementation.
This training program is designed to help women who are looking to return to the workforce after a career break or who want to change career. It combines classes and hands-on exercises to give participants the tools they need to effectively manage client portfolios.
With over 2,000 works dating from the early 20th century to today, the BCV art collection is the largest private-sector collection of paintings by artists from Vaud or with ties to our Canton.
Every year we commission an outside firm, Swiss climate, to measure BCV’s impact on the environment. Based on the findings of the report, we then take concrete steps to improve our performance.
We support FinanceMission, a Swiss-wide initiative to encourage adolescents to manage their money responsibly and increase their financial knowledge by playing an educational game called FinanceMission Heroes.
