Swisspreneur is a non-profit on a mission to promote and advance entrepreneurship in Switzerland. The organization was founded in 2016 by Alain Chuard and Christian Hirsig, with Christian as its host. 16 episodes in video format were produced, interviewing a wide scope of Swiss startup founders. I took over from Chris in 2018 and since then the episodes have been released in audio format only. We released 150+ podcast episodes and have become Switzerland’s largest business podcast.
We have also expanded our activities, organizing quarterly Founders Dinners, live Q&A chats and even putting out a Swisspreneur Coaching Package, which allows up-and-coming startups to pick the brain of our network’s most experienced entrepreneurs. As host and managing director, I am leading our 10+ people team and am responsible for sales and partner acquisitions.

I also launched B2B marketing campaigns to generate more leads for our sales pipeline through targeted Google, Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, and YouTube ads.
