The digitalisation of the financial industry is just taking off. We as Swiss Finance startups are at the forefront of this change. The SFS wants to foster the common Swiss startup spirit, support the exchange of ideas as well as industry know-how and help to educate the outside, non-startup, world about our brilliant ventures.


Better together - the SFS is a great community of like-minded people who believe in making the financial lives of our customers easier.


We create new experiences for our users and think our ideas should be heard. The SFS is the point of contact for journalists interested in Swiss Finance startups.


Outside the startup scene, our entrepreneurial work is barely known. We show Switzerland that there is a young ecosystem besides to CS, UBS and AXA.


Don´t fall into the same trap! Startups are about taking risks, learning fast and avoiding mistakes - we support each other and grow together.
