"I always kept an eye on the world of entrepreneurship, reading and listening to serial entrepreneurs and VC stories - but when I was working on my own startup, I realized there is much more to be learned by doing rather than watching others doing it. I see this experience as invaluable for me as either a future founder or VC, which are paths I am driven to pursue."

Swiss student entrepreneurs needed more. We decided to build it.

Wingman Campus Fund was built by Wingman Ventures, the leading pre-seed VC fund in Switzerland. Located in a country with two top-20 universities in the world and a leading business school, we decided to support student founders by launching a student-run VC fund investing in 15 startups per year at ETHZ, EPFL and HSG.

Access to venture capital remains unequal. We decided to change it.

We recognized that Wingman Ventures' platform and resources could be leveraged to enable new students from every gender, race, and social background to start their own company or break into the venture capital industry. Wingman Campus Fund is our answer to lead the fight for diversity in the tech industry.

Our student family

We are volunteers from ETHZ, EPFL and HSG passionate about tech and supporting the startups on our campus. We come from all walks of life and are based all over Switzerland.
