Bridge Of Competence And Friendship
Start up & innovation community
The bridge of competence and friendship is an intercultural community created especially for the Israeli and Swiss Start up scenes.
Based on personal and international friendship our platform enables a quick and efficient exchange of mutual knowledge, technologies and resources. We use the resulting synergy to create new opportunities. Our dream is that new products and ecosystems result out of our unique cross cultural community. BOCAF enables members to gain new partnerships and get access to new business areas.

We are looking for Entrepreneurs who share the same vision and heartbeat that drives us. We value the common welfare more than individual success. That is why we are based on the principle of giving more than taking. As part of the group you are asked to contribute your experiences, knowledge, network and ideas.
Because a good relationship is very important to us, we expect every community member to participate at least once a year in an BOCAF event.
In April 2019 the board of the Hirschengraben Coworking + Innovation traveled to Israel. There they got to get to know the Israeli Start up scene and other coworking spaces. The idea of a "Bridge of friendship and competence" came up during that trip. Shortly after BOCAF was founded.
The Business Development Department of Lucerne is committed to enhancing economic affairs and economic collaboration in Lucerne. Its core competences include the areas of promotion, settlement, corporate development and promotion of new entrepreneurs as well as the expansion and maintenance of the network with the canton, communities, business and organizations. Hence, they are the perfect partners for BOCAF.
