We are founders. fast. results-driven.

Revolutionizing the way businesses are built

Shaping the economic future

From a sparkling moment in Davos at the World Economic Forum 2016 FACTOR10 was born. We know that established companies are in a struggle to regain or hold global leadership positions in markets which are completely changing through digital transformation. The customer of the 21st Century has great expectations regarding services and customization. Traditional companies need to adapt to a customer-centric mindset.

Our mission

FACTOR10 strives to significantly shape our environment by combining the strengths of large established companies with the speed of startups and digital expertise.

We believe

The future depends on how fast we learn to extend our traditional strengths with radically new digital mindsets.
