Julian Liniger CEO & Co-Founder of Relai
It makes me feel connected to the Swiss startup (founders) ecosystem and helps me build my network and to exchange experiences with startup peers.
Laura Matter Founder
"No matter what problem I reach out to them with, the Swiss Startup Association always has a contact, a free workshop, or simply a motivational injection. Especially for people like me who are still inexperienced as entrepreneurs, their support is worth its weight in gold!"
Pascal Brunner vatorex
"The Swiss Startup Association is the nationwide voice of entrepreneurs. As startups can only move the ecosystem together, we joined the SSA."
Michael Kubli kinetic AG
"It is important that Swiss startups also have a voice in politics and that they can stick together as well as benefit from each other. The SSA makes this possible and that is why I am a member myself."
