In 2001, the opportunity arose to take over the advisory of the Venture Incubator Fund. Each of us had enjoyed rewarding careers in various capacities: Consulting, Corporate, Medical, and Entrepreneurial. And yet, when the opportunity arose to become instrumental players in Switzerland’s burgeoning start-up scene, we joined the endeavor and became a team. For nearly 20 years, we have been partnering with entrepreneurs on behalf of the Fund’s corporate shareholders.
Venture Incubator is unique evergreen fund that had been created by McKinsey & Company and the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich (ETHZ) in 2000. Ten of Switzerland’s leading global corporations backed the project both financially and with active engagement. The mission is a blend of stimulating and cultivating Switzerland’s start-up ecosystem as well as creating successful companies that would benefit Switzerland.
We partner with start-up management teams as constructive Board members, with our syndicate partners to source the most promising opportunities and ensure their success, with our corporate shareholders who recognize the strategic importance of knowing what lies on the horizon.
