We are serial entrepreneurs.
Building profitable things.

How we got started

Here’s a quick version of our journey and how we got started, what keeps us moving forward and the people driving resilent team.

  • getting Started

Resilient (formerly Chainwork) is led by a group of entrepreneurs whose initial mission was to create a platform that fosters innovation in technology. In 2019 we first opened Chainwork as a Community Hub for the Swiss startup community.

  • our first year

Within its first year of operation, Chainwork onboarded over a dozen ventures as part of its coworking operations, and added over 1,800 sqm of space to its growing operations of start-ups, investors and entrepreneurs.

  • becoming builders​

having created a strong connection to swiss innovation ecosystem, our management team decided to become more actively involved with the development of new concepts, and launched resilient with a new mission of building our own businesses.

Our management team brings together a mix of people from different decades, 120 years of professional experience and a youthful enthusiasm to build new businesses.
