Jochen Schweizer

Founder, Entrepreneur, Author and Motivational Speaker

As the founder of the eponymous brand Jochen Schweizer embodies experiences of all kind, like no other: kayaking on the most extreme rivers in Europe, riding a motorbike across Africa, starring as a stuntman in action films, holding a bungee world record, advocating Zen meditation and yoga. Deriving from his passion for the extraordinary, 25 years ago Jochen Schweizer established a business to make experiences accessible for everybody. Today the former TV-Lion of “Die Höhle der Löwen“(“dragon’s den”) is a successful entrepreneur, bestselling author and greatly demanded speaker. With his newest project, the Jochen Schweizer Arena, he fulfills the aspiration of humankind: flying with nothing than your own body in a vertical wind-tunnel and offers indoor-surfing on a stationary wave. In 2019 his own primetime TV-Show “Der Traumjob” (“The dream job”) will air on Pro7. His motto: “I always find myself at the starting point. I am always at the beginning and never at the finish line.”

The Jochen Schweizer Group bundles all activities of its founder Jochen Schweizer as an entrepreneur, investor, speaker, author and TV personality. At its core the Jochen Schweizer Arena offers indoor skydiving, stationary wave riding, a high rope course and flying fox, as well as a restaurant and event space. The Jochen Schweizer Arena will be expanded by a hotel and conference center in the near future.
