Finding Investors

Has anyone here had any experience (website links, companies, forums) for finding business investors? There seems to be 100s of Swiss sites asking for 1.000CHF and up for "start-up business help". I am just looking for some reputable places you've dealt with in the past for starting your business. Also, does anyone know a place to find grant information? We were told there are some government financed groups which help companies wanting to produce their product in Switzerland or specific canton. Any help or links are appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Re: Finding Investors

Hi Jennifer

If your business has some kind of social impact or sustainability angle I would recommend checking out Impact Hub Zurich, a co-working space and start up support centre. It's a wealth of advice, contacts and support and potential investors....

I hope this helps.

Stephanie

Re: Finding Investors

nowadays there are a few platforms which provide directories of different types of investors based in Switzerland. Here are a few:

And this is a very handy presentation of financing startups in Switzerland:

Re: Finding Investors

ZKB will definitely be an address to check, once you have compiled your financing list. ZKB is a bank and provides early stage venture capital too many Swiss start ups.

Re: Finding Investors

Are anyone of you familiar with similar financing in canton Schwyz. I understand that most of investors already mentioned as well as business angels, VCs or others work independent of cantons. But maybe there are some financial programs offered by canton Schwyz or relevant Gemeinde?

Go! Mikrokredite supports business projects in Ct. Schwyz. Approved loans are made by ZKB up to CHF 40'000:

http://www.mikrokredite.ch/

Another microcredit organization which offers business loans up to CHF 30'000 throughout Switzerland is at this link:

http://www.microcredit-solidaire.ch/

Obviously, these are loans, which have to be repaid, and not outside equity investments.
