Swisscom Ventures is the corporate venturing arm of Swisscom AG - Switzerland's leading telecom operator. The unit was founded in 2007.
Swisscom Ventures invests in growth companies with emerging business models and technologies of strategic relevance to Swisscom's 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, which portfolio companies can also leverage as a test environment for their products and services.
