We invest in pre-seed and seed rounds, with reserves for follow-on investments. Our initial investments range from CHF 325,000 to CHF 500,000, depending on the stage and valuation of the startup. We aim for a 3-7% stake, this includes an in-kind portion for our accelerator between 0.5-1%.
In addition to our investment, we offer hands-on support to our portfolio companies. We work side-by-side with you to scale your business in Europe and the US, becoming an extension of your team. Our network and team can help you overcome any business-related challenges you may face as an early-stage entrepreneur. Our goal is not to give you advice, but rather to collaborate with you on execution.
