For Entrepreneurs – By Entrepreneurs. IFJ Institut für Jungunternehmen.

Since the IFJ Institut für Jungunternehmen started the first entrepreneurial gatherings, we supported more than 60.000 entrepreneurs. During this time, we accumulated a wealth of experience to support the next generation of startups. Countless courses and events later, we still work for your entrepreneurial success.

Top Startups from Switzerland

Many successful startups have emerged from these courses and events, including more than 70 of the Top 100 startups in Switzerland. Almost all the prize winners in the Swiss startup scene attended our workshops. They conquer international markets, received several hundred million francs from investors and created thousands of jobs.

Practical Tips for Entrepreneurs

By participating in our events, you set the course for a successful career as an entrepreneur! Only people who have done it themselves can teach you how to create a successful startup. That means you will get a lot of practical know-how and tips and tricks for your own venture.

No. 1 for Startups

The IFJ Institut für Jungunternehmen was founded as a startup in 1989 and consists of a team of around 20 startup enthusiasts in Zurich, Lausanne and St. Gallen. Over the last 25 years, the IFJ has established itself as the point of contact for startups in Switzerland.
