What we're about

Not only is Zurich one of the best places in the world to live, but it's also a great place to start a business. With its top-tier educational institutions, robust infrastructure, and business friendly administration, in many ways Zurich is the ideal place to launch a startup. There is a wealth of creative energy and entrepreneurial spirit in this area, but this sometimes gets lost in the perception that Zurich is simply a "banking town". Also, while there has long been an entrepreneurial scene here, it is somewhat of an exclusive club, and it can be particularly intimidating to non-locals, or aspiring entrepreneurs who want to learn the ropes before jumping in completely.

We can change that! The goal of this group is to open up the entrepreneurial community, giving people a friendly and casual way to network, share ideas, and help each other succeed. There is no pressure or prejudice here, just a group of people who share a belief in the power of free enterprise, and who enjoy having a good chat with like-minded others.

So whether you are a seasoned entrepreneur, a student who is considering what to do next, or just someone who wants to take the path less traveled, come join us! Whether you want to start the next Google, or just make a living being self-employed, or anything in between, come join us! Investors and service providers are also welcome, as long as there is no overt solication.

We normally meet in the evening of the third Wednesday of each month. In addition, smaller morning gatherings take place on Tuesday mornings. Locations vary, so watch for your email invitation and check the details carefully.

We hope to see you at the next meetup!

Tuesday Morning Meeting in Person 8 am

25hours Hotel Zürich Langstrasse

Join us for our weekly entrepreneurship coffee.
This meeting is a self help group. Entrepreneurialism can be very challenging and we help each other through the trials and tribulations of being an entrepreneur.

If you are a new joiner looking at starting a business, we can help you find new clients, challenge your idea, and get up and running.
If you are an experienced entrepreneur, don't hesitate to join as it can be very rewarding to help young entrepreneurs find their way to success.

The meeting is held same day same time once per week. We picked Tuesday mornings as it is an optimal time.

The meeting starts at 8 am. The introductions start at 8:15. It is a good practice for entrepreneurs to practice getting going in the morning, as many entrepreneurs get stuck in home offices. It gets us out of bed in the morning. In addition, our brains are more awake and fresh in the mornings.

The meeting starts with 2 to 3 minute introductions with no interruptions, no comments, no questions. Each person does it to practice their so-called "elevator pitch", practice speaking in front of people. Speaking out loud sounds different than in the head. Please come on time to hear the participants introductions, it helps understand their focus and mission, as well as your own, and serves to kickstart the second part of the meeting.

After introductions, we go into open discussion. The newbies often have questions to more experienced entrepreneur. You are very welcome to share your challenges, fears, or update us on your advancement and situation.

We discuss several topics regularly, such as finding clients, keeping the dedication and focus, or basic to advanced tips and tricks of entrepreneurship. However the conversation is each week different, as the participants tend to vary greatly.

It is important to note that we do not sell our products and services. We tell about our product and services. These are two different states of mind. We value dearly this rule and stick to it with passion, as people who sell are often in a fearful state of mind and induce tension. We want everyone to relax and have fruitful exchanges.

Promotion products, business cards, one to one conversations, etc... are to be handed out or happen at the end of the meeting, which is usually between 9:30 and 10:00. You can also come for a shorter period of time, but we ask you to stick to the 8 o'clock rule.
