As the Managing Director of Fri Up, I help ideas becoming start-ups and start-ups taking off and flying.

Fri Up is the official support organization for business creations in the state (canton) of Fribourg. What we can do for you:
1) Personalized business coaching: we firmly believe in a practical approach - You need to test your product out there, on the field, to confirm your market potential.
2) Expertise and know-how: business plan, product management, marketing, communication –everything you need to launch successfully, we’ve got it covered.
3) Access to our ecosystem: Academical and industrial partners, research facilities, mentors and experts - let’s see who from our long list of partners can contribute to your success.
4) Financing: investors, venture capitalists and seed capital - We’ll help you get to the financial means you need to advance.

Prior to Fri Up, I acquired an extensive experience in developing and launching new consumer technology products and digital services. This very often resulted in the need to create innovative and disruptive solutions in a human-centered and field-oriented way, in the creation of new businesses and in start-ups acquisitions.

I practice Design Thinking when I support start-ups and large organizations to develop new business ideas. I also give Design Thinking lectures in several executive MBA and Master programs in Switzerland.

Besides that, I initiated the TEDx conferences in Fribourg. These conferences gather every year participants around a group of speakers who present ideas, projects or unique achievements.
