We always hear about the rights of democracy, but the major responsibility of it is participation.

THE VOICE OF SWISS STARTUPS

We speak for

  • a better legal, regulatory and tax environment for founders and startups in Switzerland
  • a startup-friendly collaboration with Swiss authorities and institutions.
  • a more social and political awareness of Switzerland’s startup ecosystem

since 2015!

WE ARE MANY

The Swiss Startup Association (SSA) gives the Swiss startup ecosystem a common voice in society, business and politics. The challenges faced by startups differ greatly from those of established companies. 

The SSA sees itself as an umbrella organization to represent all different startup industries, regions and organizations in a uniform way.

If You Want To Go Fast, Go Alone. If You Want To Go Far, Go Together!

WE ARE STARTUPS

And together we shape the startup landscape in Switzerland

BECOME A MEMBER

As a non-profit association, we are financed by members and patronage fees. We thus remain independent and ensure our credibility. We act as a bottom-up organised umbrella organisation for all existing Swiss startup communities and organisations.
