Who is behind

cofoundme is a student-run platform supported by the ETH Entrepreneur Club from Zurich. The platform was founded in the beginning of 2014 with the initial intention to connect business students from the HSG and students with a technical background from the ETH to foster entrepreneurial activities. Since then, the platform has expanded its user base rapidly and started collaborations with important partner organisations and entrepreneurship initiatives. Find out more on our about page.
