26.3.2018 The Swiss ICT Investor Club (SICTIC) organises regular events to bring together investors with startups looking for investment. Last year one third of the 91 startups that received funding, pitched at the events. The call for applications is now open for startups interested in pitching at the upcoming events.
The business angel club SICTIC has seen continuous growth in the number of angel investors joining the club (from 91 to 171 in 2017) and in attendance at its events, the angel trainings and Investor days. While angel trainings equip investors with necessary skills on investing, the venture days give them the opportunity to meet early and later stage technology based startups that are looking for funds and professional support.
At each investor day, startups are selected to pitch to the audience and answer their questions. After the first round of pitches, the audience votes for the most promising start-ups to pitch in a second round with an 8-minute presentation.
Applications for startups interested in pitching at the upcoming events is now open for the following SICTIC investor Days.
