A normal CHF10 million week

26.01.2018 14:31

Investors believe in Swiss start-ups – this will be demonstrated by the forthcoming 6th Swiss Venture Capital Report. And a look at the news of the last week shows unbroken momentum.

Dear reader

The bad news is that unfortunately the two startupticker brunches next Tuesday and Wednesday in Zurich and Lausanne are fully booked. But the good news is that the new Swiss Venture Capital Report, which will be presented at the two events, can be pre-ordered and will be available as a PDF on startupticker from Tuesday morning.

The report lists more than 150 financing rounds, and the last week has brought seven more: drone manufacturer Wingtra collected $5.8 million, OnlineDoctor CHF600,000, solar panel manufacturer Insolight CHF2.3 million, 3D printer manufacturer 9T Labs CHF 300,000, and IT company guruu CHF800,000. In addition, HR software supplier jacando and boat sharing platform Boataffair also completed financing rounds of an unknown amount. All in all, about CHF10 million – a normal week in the Swiss start-up eco-system.

The Swiss start-up scene has also attracted the attention of Forbes magazine: its list ‘30 under 30 Europe’ includes three Swiss founders – Reto Trinkler from Melonport, brothers Omar and Taha Bawa from Goodwall, and Christophe Haldi from eeproperty.

Next Wednesday, the kick-off event from >> venture >> will take place in ETH Zurich’s Audi Max. And the next day, at Impact Hub, founders and experts will discuss the strengths and weaknesses of Zurich as a location with Marc Gysin, director of SVA Zürich. The next Microsoft Student Innovation Hack starts in Wallisellen in mid-February. Finally, don’t forget the closing date for the Swiss Economic Award on 31 January.

Have a good weekend.
