What is the Capacity Effect?

What we do

Capacity seeks to build a society that is open and supportive of everyone, regardless of their background.

We work at the intersection of entrepreneurship, innovation and social inclusion. Therefore, we run a talent and startup incubator for people with refugee or migrant background who would like to launch a business or socio-cultural initiative in Switzerland.

Each year, we offer comprehensive programmes which include numerous personal and professional development tools for our participants to find opportunities that are as big as their dreams.
