Innovation is the specific instrument of entrepreneurship.”

Peter Drucker

Oliver Durrer, Founder
A Swiss global citizen, epicurean explorer loving life and learning, I am passionate about people, tech, lean innovation and social impact. 
I am on a mission to empower purpose-driven pioneers to unleash their full potential. 

My 15+ years experience as an intrapreneur and entrepreneur cover Europe, Southeast Asia and the Silicon Valley, with large corporations such as Nestlé and Migros, as well as tech startups.

For Migros Club School, Switzerland’s biggest private vocational education institution, my team and I launched, scaled and integrated a corporate EdTech startup and built the InnoLab. At Nestlé, I held marketing, sales and business leadership roles for a decade, contributing to Nescafé Dolce Gusto’s record growth, launching Nestlé Myanmar Ltd and leading multicultural teams to award-winning performance.

I hold a lic. oec. in Business Management from Lausanne University (HEC) Switzerland. A certified lean innovation coach and market opportunity navigator, I lecture intrapreneurship and innovation at HWZ Zurich Business School's Executive MBA in Digital Leadership. 

A fan of foreign cultures and languages, I enjoy connecting with people in (Swiss-)German, English, French, Italian & Spanish. Let's connect on LinkedIn or Twitter.
