What we do
We connect young professionals with innovative companies for a project based or a long term job. To provide even more value, we coach the newly found young professionals during a hands-on training to allow them to truly dive into the startup mentality.
Are you between 25 and 35 years old, with roughly 2 - 6 years of work experience? Then this is for you! We are looking for people with a doer-mentality, a curious mind, and the drive to find a job that matters.
You are motivated to work in an innovative, entrepreneurial and human-centered setting and curious about agile approaches, flexible structures and work cultures, where failures is allowed and where you meet people at eye-level.
If you possess a valid work permit for Switzerland and are available from October or November onwards (at least 51%), apply now! Find the fees for young professionals here.
Is your company looking for a young professional for a project-based or a long-term collaboration? Is your organisation innovative in terms of products or work culture? Then let's talk.
We attract talents who want to get things moving rather than to preserve the status quo. We are deeply rooted in the startup ecosystem and reach a different kind of candidates.
Our weekly training sessions help the young professionals to connect the newly learned startup ways with the practical work experience in your company. Find the overview of the fees for companies here.

What our FORMER COMPANIES say
Annina and Isabel have known each other since high school. Their decisions took them down different paths but crossed again at Impact Hub Zürich. At Impact Hub Zürich, Annina used to be in charge of activities supporting startups and entrepreneurial careers since 2013. Isabel joined the Impact Hub Zürich team three years later as a Community Builder.
While working together, the two powerhouses decided to join forces in early 2018 to found Future.preneurship, a spin-off of Impact Hub Zürich. Together, they are on a mission to connect humans - not CVs. Today, they can build on seven years of successfully connecting students and innovative companies.
We are an official spin-off of Impact Hub Zürich, a community with over 1'500 entrepreneurs, techies and creatives. It's the hot spot for innovation and startups in Switzerland. The Impact Hub network is locally rooted and globally connected with over 100 cities.
