Venture Kick closes a key gap in the innovation chain: turning research work into promising business ideas. The pre-seed fund not only funds the first steps of people with ideas, but also develops their entrepreneurial skills. A three-step process leads to a spin-off with a solid business plan for the economic implementation of the innovation.
Venture Kick was launched in 2007 by Gebert Rüf Stiftung and Ernst Göhner Stiftung as a privately financed pre-seed fund. Today, the initiative is supported by 11 private partners, foundations, individuals and companies who all share the same vision of supporting the next generation of successful entrepreneurs for the prosperity of the Swiss economy and society: venturekick.ch
