The umbrella association of Swiss startups


Our Ecosystem

As the Swiss Startup Association (SSA), we work to enhance the framework conditions for startups in Switzerland and provide them with a unified voice. To achieve this goal successfully, we rely not only on our 1,600+ startup members but also on other significant startup organizations within the ecosystem. Therefore, we collaborate closely with various other startup organizations and associations, regularly exchanging ideas to position Switzerland as the leading startup nation in Europe.

  • ADVOCATE for startups
  • EDUCATE startups and support them to be successful
  • IMPROVE the framework conditions for entrepreneurs

The SSA maintains strong ties with the startup ecosystem and its key stakeholders. Additionally, the SSA is a member of economiesuisse, representing the voice of startups within the broader economic landscape of Switzerland.
