Our Story

what. was founded out of our passion for building digital businesses and making them commercially successful.

We regularly meet founders and CEOs who have strong domain expertise, but need help with their online sales, go to market or broader digital strategy. What’s more, traditional digital agencies rarely fit into the lean startup development methodologies. We decided to change this.
Noticing that there was a gap in the market for a service provider for lean companies, what. was founded in 2015 and quickly became a trusted partner for many new companies in Switzerland and abroad. We are now one of the leading growth hacking and development agencies for modern companies, with a distributed team of over 40 professionals.

With a focus on the end customers, we help companies build their digital business through growth hacking and new product development.

Swiss with global connections

We have strong links to the Swiss startup ecosystem and our international mindset brings diversity and creativity to every project. We work closely with startups, modern companies, corporate innovation departments, investors, accelerators and incubators all over the world – providing mentorship, workshops and our services.
