Inspired by #WirVsVirus Hackathon (15,000 participants in Germany) and HackCrisis (Poland), the whole of Switzerland wanted to organize this unique event, under the patronage of the Federal Department of Home Affairs (FDHA). #VersusVirus was initiated by Impact Hub Switzerland and organized in collaboration with numerous partners such as Medgate, Panter, Powercoders,, Gebert Rüf Stiftung, digitalswitzerland, Staatslabor, Swisscom, ETH Entrepreneur Club, forums, and many more. 

In French-speaking Switzerland, Open Geneva has joined forces with several actors to make this national event resonate at the local level (EPFL Tech4Impact, eqlosion, We Start, SocialUp, Utopia International and Impact Hub Geneva and Impact Hub Lausanne).
