Swiss Post’s innovation programme

Through its Group-wide PostVenture innovation programme, Swiss Post aims to search for fresh business ideas which help it to continue to develop in its strategic business development areas. PostVenture has already run three times: in 2013, 2015 and 2017.

PostVenture’s target group includes Swiss Post employees as well as external individuals. Swiss Post enters into partnerships with young talent and entrepreneurs who want to capture the market with new business models, and helps these young entrepreneurs to implement interesting projects. While developing and implementing their business ideas, participants benefit from specialist and financial support from Swiss Post as well as from the experience of experts consulted by Swiss Post.

External participants retain all the rights to their own ideas.

As a diversified company, Swiss Post operates in the communication, logistics, financial services and passenger transport markets. It focuses on seven strategic business development areas in which it consistently develops its range of services and is always on the lookout for new business ideas:

  • Cross-channel communication
  • BPO / shared services
  • Digital banking
  • Sales and solutions for major business customers
  • Digital trust
  • E-commerce
  • Mobility

As soon as the next PostVenture has been scheduled, a notice will be displayed here. If you have any questions or feedback in the meantime, please contact us at

Would you participate again? Yes, definitely. This is a great platform to validate / invalidate what works in the industry. I liked most the openness. Being an outsider there was always a chance of getting neglected. But the way PostVenture treated everyone equally and gave an equal opportunity to flourish – is simply not seen anywhere else. Such programs can help Swiss Post stay ahead of the curve and be an innovation leader in the industry.”
