About us

Our Founders and Partners

Where We Come From

Our story began in 1996. Four students joined forces to offer consulting services to companies. Hence the name Unic: an abbreviation of University Consulting.

Even 25 years later, we do not belong to any corporate group or agency network. We retain our independence, our humanity and our DNA. Our founders Stephan Handschin and Gerrit Taaks have been supporting our clients in their digital projects since 1996. And our partners Markus Haschka, Ivo Bättig, Philippe Surber and Reto Schnaars are also actively involved in shaping Unic in operational roles.

We have been organised according to Holacracy since 2017. Our 250 employees continue to develop the company and take responsibility for a sustainable organisation.
