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 10 private partners, foundations, individuals and companies who all share the same vision: Supporting the next generation of successful entrepreneurs for the prosperity of the Swiss economy and society.
Venture Kick is part of the Kick Program and hosted by the Kick Foundation which is supervised by the Swiss Federal Supervisory Authority for Foundations.
