We are convinced that Switzerland offers excellent human capital, deep specialist knowledge, and world-leading institutions. Switzerland does not have to hide in terms of innovation and startup quality. We want to keep Switzerland at the forefront of innovation. Digital transformation offers gigantic opportunities for those who innovate. Our goal is to make the Swiss startup ecosystem heard on a global scale with successful “innovation made in Switzerland”.
Spicehaus Partners AG is a Swiss venture capital investor. We focus on companies that drive digital transformation. Building a company is a marathon, not a sprint. We are hands-on investors and actively accompany our portfolio companies on their road to success.
We uniquely combine entrepreneurship and institutional investment experience. Our work is driven by our experience as entrepreneurs, investors, operational managers, and board members. And by our passion for venture capital.
As successful entrepreneurs and investors, we feel that our privileges create an obligation. We apply strict environmental, social, and governance (ESG) criteria in our investment practice. We make a dedicated effort to influence our portfolio companies to contribute to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Every portfolio company shall aspire to contribute to at least one of the goals. In addition, we devote a share of our annual revenue for charitable activities. In 2019, we supported the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals Nr. 14 (Life Below Water) and Nr. 17 (Partnerships for the Goals).
