SUBKULT is a non-profit association based in Lucerne, Switzerland that supports young professionals in building and developing their leadership skills and competences who are on the beginning of their career.


Ikigai (ee-key-guy) is a Japanese concept that combines the terms iki, meaning “alive” or “life,” and gai, meaning “benefit” or “worth.” When combined, these terms mean that which gives your life worth, meaning, or purpose. Therefore, our purpose and meaning of work is:

"Reinforcing the power of ambitious young leaders like you to use your full potential to shape the future of your career with a crystal clear vision where you want to get and what you want to achieve. Even when it's cloudy and grey outside, SUBKULT is here to help you climb up above and enjoy the benefits of the sun."
