Once described as the “puppet master of Crypto Valley” by popular Swiss financial blog finews, Ralf is indeed an essential figure in Switzerland’s growing Crypto Valley. This became evident most recently when he co-founded CV|VC, a venture capital firm looking to invest a sizeable amount in blockchain startups. Naturally, the blockchain space is not the first field Ralf is reinventing. As a co-founder and Managing Partner of inacta AG, he’s moved countless firms in finance and the insurance industry into the digital age, leveraging his experience and vast network from more than 20 years in the IT and consulting industry. Ralf is also behind household names and events such as co-working space CV Labs, the bi-annually landmark conference CV Summit and the CV Competition, the first competition of its kind boasting a prize of U$100’000 with no strings attached.
