Swisscom Ventures is the corporate venturing arm of Swisscom AG - Switzerland’s leading telecom operator. The group was founded in 2005 as a division of Swisscom’s group level activities.
Swisscom Ventures invests in growth companies with emerging business models and technologies of strategic relevance to its core business. As a value-added investor, Swisscom brings its investee companies the technical expertise and strategic insights of an incumbent telecom operator. We act as a bridge to Swisscom’s operational business units, including Swisscom Labs, which portfolio companies can also leverage as a test environment for their products and services.
As such, Swisscom Ventures seeks minority stakes in companies related to the emerging information/ communications/entertainment space. We also invest to spin out internal Swisscom business concepts. We will consider opportunities from any geographic region (although with a general preference for Europe), and prefer companies at early to mid stage in their life cycle.
