Me in short: I want to INSPIRE and IMPACT people in Switzerland to start their own Startup ideas with the goal to create the NEXT BIG Swiss companies today and not only tomorrow because THE TIME of digital transformation and big business model shifts IS NOW.
MY PASSION IS MY WORK, Startup Acceleration work, Startup DNA, Startup scouting, Startup investments, opening my Swiss high level network to the best Swiss Startup Champions who really deserve it.
Building the bridge between the old economy and the new economy to best possible solve the challenges of digital transformation and its impact Swiss companies face are one of MY MISSIONS. Therefore I’m an active DIGITAL BOARD MEMBER in several Swiss companies.
I’m frequent a key note speaker at universities, small and mid size corporates as well as startup events with my commitment TO GIVE BACK the knowledge about the magic of accelerating startup ideas in Switzerland and developing new digital companies.
Originally I started as a commercial apprentice at UBS and worked my way up to the top management at one of the biggest Swiss Private Banks. Today as a startup entrepreneur I connect the BEST OF BOTH WORLDS and therefore the banking world platform adds a lot of value to my work in the Swiss Startup ecosystem.
Besides my passion for my job I’m a BIG SPORTS FAN. I’m a lover of my hometown hockey club Fribourg Gotteron and an active follower of the Swiss Tennis Pros on the ATP tour. What fascinates me most is how close the DNA of a top sports professional and a top Startup team is.
I’m always interested in hearing from colleagues, investors, other Startup specialists in any field around the world or just creative and crazy Startup folks, so please feel free to contact me if I can be of any help to you.
Best regards Mike
