SICTIC Angel Training

Jacqueline Ruedin Rüsch

Founder & CEO, Privilège Management SA

“When I founded Privilège Management SA I crowned my dream of becoming an entrepreneur. Come to think of it, I have been an entrepreneur since chindhood when I helped my parents develop marketing strategies for their hotel or helped my dad manage his radio station by selling advertising space and generating ideas on programming that would foster ideas sharing and provide constructive advice to people in need. For me that was the beginning of a wonderful learning journey that continues to this day. This is probably one of the reasons why I ended up introducing Venture Capital within Privilège – and what a marvellous «adVenture» it has been! I love traveling, learning and staying in touch with people who are positive and energetic. I also believe that challenges should be welcomed, not shunned, because behind every challenge there are opportunities.”
