Spicehaus Partners AG is a Swiss venture capital investor. We focus on early stage companies in the technology sector. We are interested in companies that develop new technologies, create new business models and/or disrupt existing value chains primarily in sectors such as financial services, insurance, legal & regulation, property, human resources and education.
The founding partners uniquely combine investment experience and entrepreneurship. We actively work with our portfolio companies to generate sustainable results. We firmly believe that venture capital is not only about investment selection - it's also about creating long-term partnerships towards mutual success between entrepreneurs and investors. We are convinced that strong returns in venture capital are a function of persistence and execution.
Our aim is to drive digital transformation in Switzerland. Switzerland is excellently positioned in terms of innovation and global competitiveness. We have world-leading universities and research facilities such as ETH Zurich, EPF Lausanne, IMD, CERN, Paul Scherrer Institute etc.

We invest in early stage companies with demonstrated proof-of-concept of their business model – typically an existing product or prototype and first paying customers. We are mindful about the valuations we pay and the terms we sign in order to have the right alignment of interest between startups and investors for a mutually beneficial journey over the years to come. Once invested, we actively support our startups with our network and expertise.
As a startup, you can count on us. Building a company is a marathon, not a sprint. We know how long and what it takes and support you on your journey to success.
With Spicehaus Partners AG, wealthy individuals, family offices and institutional investors get access to the most promising startups in Switzerland.
