“Try it, Do it, Fix it and think BIG”

Alain Nicod, Alumni of the faculty of business and economics

A graduate of the University of Lausanne (HEC 1980), he received his MBA from INSEAD in 1983.

Three main periods: An early career with Arthur Andersen and McKinsey. Enriching experiences because I understood what a strong corporate culture meant. The rest was mainly dedicated to entrepreneurial adventures: in the world of rehabilitation and sports, in food distribution, in telecommunications, in the world of seminars, in the world of industrial purchasing to name a few. This period allowed me to discover the power of entrepreneurship. From 2002, participation in the management of the Venture Incubator fund which is dedicated to early stage venture in Switzerland. Launch of fund number 2 with comparable objectives in 2019. A privilege to be able to contribute to building the companies of tomorrow with so many young and talented entrepreneurs.
