In the fast-paced world of online shopping there are standout figures.
One of these is, Alexandre Bonvin, whose finance and real estate background, means he is determined not to follow the crowd.
As the founder and CEO of Audacia Group, a Swiss investment holding company specializing in e-commerce, Alexandre is the epitome of modern-day entrepreneurship in action.
Alexandre is a product of the world’s finest educational institutions. A graduate of the London School of Economics with an MSC in Real Estate, Economics & Finance, and a recent alumnus of MIT Sloan’s Executive Program in General Management, he seamlessly merges academic intellect with hands-on business acumen.
In 2018, having identified the boundless potential of the e-commerce sector, Alexandre single-handedly founded Audacia.
This move was followed by the acquisition of its first brand, KissKiss—a Swiss e-shop specializing in adult toys and accessories—marked the beginning of an ambitious journey into the dynamic universe of online retail.

Today, Audacia Group is not just a company; it is Alexandre’s vision personified. It is a robust network that manages 16 online platforms offering products or services, active in more than 45 countries worldwide, and attending to the needs of over 2.3 million customers.
Alexandre has transformed Audacia from a startup into a formidable presence in the e-commerce landscape.
In e-commerce, adapting is paramount, and Alexandre is aware of this. He points out that the pandemic has significantly altered consumers’ behaviors, propelling e-commerce into greater prominence.
To stay ahead, Alexandre and his team at Audacia work tirelessly to enhance the entire customer experience. They are not mere spectators to the ever-changing world of e-commerce; they are active participants, constantly molding and adapting their strategies to align with market needs and customer expectations.
In 2021, Audacia Group broke new ground by becoming one of the first companies to tokenize its shares on the blockchain.
This move, innovative and audacious—much like Alexandre himself—represents the company’s commitment to leveraging cutting-edge technologies.
Moreover, Alexandre’s insights and accomplishments have garnered attention from various media outlets, from Swiss publications like Bilan and PME Magazine to international platforms like Forbes France and Forbes Europe, further solidifying his reputation as a thought leader in the field.
Part of Alexandre’s strategic brilliance lies in his capacity to look beyond Switzerland’s borders. His aspirations for Audacia are distinctly international.
“I want to make Audacia one of the Swiss references in e-commerce,” he asserts, emphasizing the word ‘Swiss’ but with his eye firmly set on the broader map. Efforts are underway to introduce some of Audacia’s brands in significant English-speaking markets, like the UK and the USA.
These moves are not just growth strategies; they are declarations of ambition that have started bolstering Audacia’s brand recognition in these new territories.
His unique approach to business growth is not just acquiring promising e-commerce companies; he seeks to integrate them seamlessly into Audacia’s existing framework.
For Alexandre, the next few years are clear: support and grow these brands in the best possible way—expanding activities and opening up new markets under the steadfast banner of Audacia.
In the end, it’s not just about business growth or numbers for Alexandre. It’s a passion.
His journey has been about using his skills and learning to give promising e-shops a bigger stage.
