Our story

Securaxis is a start-up founded in Geneva at the end of 2015 by people used to working in conflict zones, unstable regions and unsafe cities. They joined forces to develop the tools they would have liked to have available to them to ensure their colleaguesand their own safety


Convinced that new technologies can and should help to ensure better security and access to security information, the Securaxis team has developed these tools, which are only the first step towards building an ecosystem to manage the safety of individuals using the latest technologies.

Securaxis is the first incubated of BIC of CERN Technologies Switzerland, laureate of the Entreprendre® Network 2017, Generation Entrepreneur® 2017, invited to MassChallenge 2017, and was finalist of the Swisscom Start up Challenge 2017.

With the understanding that security is a concern for everyone, not only professional travelers, Securaxis has designed tools that helps manage each and everyone’s safety.
