Our values



Everything starts with responsibilities. It is time to realize how much our decisions have a social and environmental impact for the future. If we want to create a better world, we need to take responsibility now.



At GAIN, we break the rules of conventional investment. We look for innovative projects and ambitious entrepreneurs, with no fear to propose new ideas. Innovation also means change.



We don’t measure the potential of a project only by the profit it generates. In the GAIN ecosystem, values, impact and goals have as much weight as results.



Our strategy is based on responding to a need and bringing a solution. To do that,
we choose quality instead of quantity by selecting only the most promising impact-driven startups in Switzerland to pitch to passionate investors.
