Bluelion is a Zurich-based startup incubator which supports pre-seed startups to build successful businesses. Focused on ICT and Cleantech startups, we offer personal coaching, co-working spaces, and access to industry experts and investors. Bluelion was founded in 2012 as a collaboration between Swisscom, ETH, ZKB, City of Zurich, UZH and attorney Christian Wenger.
We’re on a mission! We help startups grow sustainably and spread innovation in the Swiss start-up ecosystem. You will stay in the driver’s seat. Always. We will not make decisions for you but will gladly help you to hold course.
Throughout our three locations, new businesses work alongside well established companies where they can mingle and learn from each other.
A playground – yet not to just play around. Good vibe is important, but you need focused, professional services too.
It’s all about you. We have no hidden agenda – we simply believe in our young entrepreneurs’ visions.
We base our support on approaches such as the Lean Startup Method, Human Centered Design and Design Thinking.
What We Offer

We collaborate with entrepreneurs, intrapreneurs, and startups at all stages. We offer two beautiful co-working locations in the heart of Zurich, with a third coming soon. No matter which one you choose, you will find our team helping you achieve your goals. Our support is based on approaches such as the Lean Startup Method, Human Centered Design and Design Thinking. Being part of our community gets you free access to our extensive network of experts, mentors, and investors, as well as personal coaching.
