Founded in 2016 in Opfikon, Zippsafe designed and developed a secure hightech self-service coat check system for public places. The startup was awarded 130’000 Swiss francs at the Venture Kick final for the innovativeness of their idea.

Up to now, there were three possibilities on how to organize coat checks: An operated service with personnel, lockers or coat racks. While operated coat checks generate staff expenses, lockers take a lot of space. Coat racks are cheap but simply not safe. Zippsafe eliminates all those drawbacks and combines the merits.

Zippsafe was founded by two engineering students of ETH Zurich and already counts several employees today. They developed a new high-tech self-service coat check and service system which can be used during events, conference centres or warehouses. The coat check has an integrated patented alarm system to allow for maximum security and also offers phone or tablet charging possibilities. Moreover, the solution is mobile, allows to cut costs and improves the operational efficiency of event organisers, whereas a higher user satisfaction and friendliness can be reached.

Zippsafe, that has closed a financing round in December 2016, is already working together with Migros and several retailers in Austria, Germany and France. Following the success of its pilot trials in the DACH region and France, Zippsafe is ready to further expand in Europe.

Venture Kick helped us to understand what it takes to build a company and to become entrepreneurs. We can also bring our startup forward thanks to the fresh seed capital received from the program,” says Carlo Loderer, co-founder and CEO of Zippsafe.
