Versus Virus Switzerland

Building inclusive solutions together.

#VersusVirus connects like-minded people and organizations all over Switzerland to develop, scale and celebrate solutions against the Corona crisis.

Versus Virus creates the largest collaborative online event in the history of Switzerland in order to connect engaged citizens to develop ideas and solutions against the crisis.
And then, we do it again and again to inspire and encourage diverse teams working on all the relevant challenges.

Versus Virus runs the first country-wide fully online incubation program supporting project teams to develop their ideas and prototypes into viable solutions, initiatives or companies in both the private and the public sector.
Doing so, we strengthen the Versus Virus Community all across Switzerland.

#VersusVirus Festival

Versus Virus organizes a Festival when this is all over. We want to celebrate the collective action of people all over Switzerland, provide a stage for many successful solutions, share the learnings and dance social distancing away. This is our celebration when the community can finally meet in person again.

Our Ambitions

Developing and scaling solutions.
Our collective expertise in building and running ideation, incubation, acceleration and scaling programs, both offline and online, is put into action in order to develop and scale solutions tackling the Covid-19 crisis in Switzerland and beyond.

Building a new Swiss ecosystem.
By working together with many different organizations and initiatives all across Switzerland, we aim to build a more inclusive and connected ecosystem from Geneva to St.Gallen and from Basel to Lugano.

Spreading optimism, not the virus.
We invite, encourage and motivate everyone in Switzerland to become part of the solution. We work fully online. We create joyful experiences. And we build a movement of positivity amongst thousands of fellow citizens.
