Shareholder and Partner
The shares of Fairventures Worldwide gGmbH are currently in the hands of 16 shareholders, who have taken them over from the previous shareholder, the Swisscontact Foundation in Zurich. The circle of shareholders is composed of employees and the management, volunteering supporters and freelance experts. All shareholders take an active voluntary role, for instance as ambassadors. A shareholders‘ meeting takes place two times a year and controls the management. Further dedicated shareholders are welcome.
Within the gGmbH there exists a consultancy unit that is conducted separately. All consulting services are conducted and brought to account within this business part. All surpluses from this respective unit are being transferred to the non-profit projects after tax deduction.
