We give the Swiss startup ecosystem a collective voice.

S

wiss Startup Association (SSA) gives the Swiss startup ecosystem a collective voice in society, business and politics.

Startups face very different challenges than established companies do. The SSA is committed to creating the best possible environment for the development of both entrepreneurs and startups as we believe it benefits our entire society.

We represent the interests of startups and entrepreneurs vis-à-vis politics, business and the public. The SSA sees itself as an umbrella organization representing various startups across numerous industries, regions and organizations.

Our goal  is not only to make Switzerland the most innovative country, but also the most founder-friendly place in the world.

Umbrella Startup SSA - min

We are an umbrella organisation for startups

As an umbrella organization, we do not want to compete with existing organisations. Instead, we want to help each other and build a more supported and substainable enviroment for startups in Switzerland together. This includes promoting already existing organizations and making use of synergies between them and us.

We define ourselves as the voice for startup needs which go beyond regions or industries. As we operate nationwide, we gather these needs in ordner to collect and adress them with combined force.
We see ourselves as start-up lobbyists, both within the ecosystem and beyond. For this we rely on the input and feedback of the ecosystem.

Execution Team

The heart of our mission and of all our operations. They are the driving force making things happen.

All execution team members are volunteers.
