Today’s challenges are also today’s opportunities. We foster ideas that will improve the way we live, learn, work, heal, collaborate, and treat our environment. We invest in founders who show us the potential positive impact of emerging technologies.
Together, we are smarter. We build bridges between Switzerland, Europe and the US. Europe conducts high-quality research and development, but often the talents lack access to larger markets, industry players, and bold investors. In the US, companies and investors look to Europe for the next big thing. We find the best European technology startups and turn them into global players by helping them validate their business model, and by matching them with the right strategic partners in the US.
We believe it’s time for a new type of incubator that fits the individual needs of our member companies, and whose investors become their companies’ extended team. Our incubator is called DART because we are convinced that the best companies are built by diverse and radically interdisciplinary teams that bring Design, Art, Research, and Technology together. We care about human-centered design and ask questions about inclusion, ethics, data ownership, diversity and accessibility.
We like zebras and camels, not only unicorns!
Our goal to humanize technology, but also to humanize venture capital. Our investors bring their own experience to the table and actively select and mentor our startups. Additionally, we continue to explore new models in order to make our investment process ever more participatory and democratic.
