Last week, the Crypto Valley Association held its Extraordinary General Assembly. We asked the association what is specifically planned to help start-ups with their funding needs.

At the General Assembly, the CVA Board, whose five new members were elected in January, underlined the need to facilitate blockchain and fintech start-ups in their funding and implementation goals. The association is already working to facilitate investment support for startups through investor events and in cooperation with international networks. “We see that it is important not only to provide pitching opportunities - but also training for startups as well as investors who are new to blockchain and crypto companies”, explains Ian Simpson, Chair Communication Working Group at CVA, to Startupticker. This will be a main element of the Satellite Events of the Crypto Valley Conference in June.

The CVA is also committed to developing a “members’ market-place” in order to help increase the flow of capital into the growing industry. The association is in the process of implementing a new technical platform for its website and its members which will allow greater capacity for a share of information among members - job postings, services, investment inquiries etc. The goal is to facilitate a stronger network among the more than 1 400 members of the Association and in the process create a valuable “knowledge/expertise/service marketplace.

In addition, the Association supports the launch of an independent crypto-friendly Self-Regulatory Organisation (SRO) with a own-developed project plan and cooperates with the Swiss Bankers Association (SBA) in their effort to issue updated Guidelines on opening corporate accounts for blockchain companies. These and other projects aim to further help the ever-growing number of start-ups in Switzerland’s Crypto Valley while following on the trend towards a maturing ICO/STO market as revealed in a recent report co-published with PwC/Strategy&.
