This is Grubengold

bringing sustainable innovation
into the world

Fancy a chat? We do.

Our name Grubengold relates back to the mining roots of Germany’s Ruhr Valley, which the biggest part of our team of ~15 business hippies calls home.

Grubengold, when translated directly, is ‘mined gold’, although we are more about ‘mind gold’, as we help those ideas glimmering in your mind blossom into purposeful and profitable businesses.

Based in Bochum, Germany and Lausanne, Switzerland we embrace the honest, humble and hardworking mindset of the Ruhr area, but as a group of innovators, designers and thinkers, we also burst with creativity to help make the world a happier place.

Most importantly, we do what we do, with a whole load of heart and compassion for the individuals we work with. We see it as a privilege to accompany you on your journey!


Our commitment to be a sustainable company ourselves is woven throughout our DNA. We are of course CO2 neutral, as well as a pending B Corp, which means we conduct reoccurring, in depth sustainability audits to assess all aspects of the business and ensure we are serving ALL our stakeholders, including the environment, in the most positive way. We sincerely believe in business for good, meaning: PEOPLE, PURPOSE & PROFIT.

supporting Sustainable Innovation

We support by helping you to turn your ideas into sustainable innovations. For us this means three things:

  1. Establish a healthy eco-system
    A healthy foundation and environment is essential for nurturing anything. For start-ups and established businesses alike, this means having both the know-how, as well as considerate collaboration amongst team members.
  2. Cultivate a thriving business model
    We all have great ideas, but for them to have real ongoing market success they need to create a genuine value for people and have to be based on a solid business model.
  3. Deliver positive impact into the world
    Last but not least, the pioneering successes of today and tomorrow must change the world for long-lasting good!

Regardless of the sector you are in, we can help you at any stage of the innovation or (pre)launch process to test and ensure your concepts are clear, purpose is defined, and that your product or service relates to market needs.

The support we offer is based on extensive experience in the world of innovation, paired with creative tools and methods, as well as a genuine drive to make the world a happier place.
