Manifesto: "Democratize Innovation!"

Mantra, our declaration

Democratize Innovation!


Graypes GmbH is the Swiss company that uses algorithms and AI to assess businesses, provide targeted consultation, focus product development, or make potential investments. This way, Graypes drastically reduces the time and cost of business evaluation and funding. Around this core service, Graypes is building an open community of Innovators, Experts, and Investors that helps Innovators and their top businesses with funding, mentoring, and B2B partnerships.


The unprecedented global events during the dawn of the second decade of 2020, have been enlightening on how humanity has invested in innovation.

For many decades there has been an intensive investment spree in favor of information technology. We have focused on the creation of a "digital world", alienated from our natural world.

We have invested in digital bits but not in our analog lives.
