#WeFillTheGaps

Consultancy Boutique for Startups & Corporates

Why smartGAP?

Startups have gaps, at each stage of their life cycle. These gaps must be filled in a smart and fast way, so that founders can stay focused on their core tasks and duties. smartGAP understands founders and their needs when gaps arise and fills these gaps for them.

Corporates are continuously navigating through challenges, in order to drive change, innovation and sustainable growth and success. smartGAP offers an entrepreneurial-driven mindset based on in-depth expertise and a solution-oriented can-do culture. 

smartGAP is a Zurich-based consultancy boutique for startups and corporates. We fill the gaps with our broad expertise and extensive network to be a smart sparring partner for startups and an entrepreneurial minded consultant to corporates.


smartGAP was founded by Lukas Gysin, a successful founder and serial entrepreneur, e.g. of the ETH Zurich spin-off uniqFEED AG.

Lukas understands the ecosystem and stakeholder needs of SME and global corporates with his expertise, which includes CEO, CFO, Auditor, Board Member and Board Secretary positions.

smart. entrepreneurial minded. trustful.
