Our story

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 mission is to build new businesses. In 2019 we first opened Resilient as a Community Hub for the Swiss startup community

Our first year

Within its first year of operation, Resilient onboarded over a dozen ventures as part of its coworking operations, and added over 1,800 sqm of space to its growing operations

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
