The Story

The blog of My Big Geneva was founded in 2012 by Emilie Salvaridis because she was bored in Geneva. Via a newsletter, she sent on a monthly basis inspiring ideas to break the daily routine.

In 2020, Georgia Van Gemerden and Emilie met through the career services of Webster University, where they both studied (only Georgia graduated 15 years later than Emilie!!!) Born and raised in Geneva, Georgia is the co-founder of GET Food, where she and two of her best friends make sure you GET the FOOD you deserve, “one recommendation and recipe at the time”.

Over 35 guest bloggers and journalists have contributed to providing quality and out-of-the-beaten path tips. Our newsletter is sent to 7’000 subscribers and our community has over 25’000 followers.

Last but not least, My Big Geneva supports artists and helps them spread the word.
