Our ambition is international and are privileged to be supported by world-class investors. We have a startup environment, low bureaucracy and a truly international team and business.
We are headquartered in Zurich, the fast growing tech hub with the real mountain view. We have offices in Paris in the bustling and futurist Station F, surrounded by hundreds of startups. We like a good challenge, little bureaucracy and the eventual BBQ in our backyard.
