The Swiss ICT Investor Club (SICTIC) is a non-profit association established in 2014 that connects smart money investors to Swiss early-stage tech startups. SICTIC organizes the deal flow and matchmaking of startups and investors, and facilitates the process until the investment round closes, with an aim to grow the quantity and quality of local seed stage investments. However, SICTIC does not invest itself nor does it hold shares in startups.

Our constantly increasing number of members support the Swiss Economy to remain competitive and cutting edge, give back to the community, help build successful companies, and also get the satisfaction that comes from sharing knowledge and create meaningful jobs, all while sharing the network and investment risks with like-minded investors.

SICTIC is an outstanding investor’s circle that combines passion for startups and in-depth entrepreneurial experience with the power of seed money to make things happen.

The SICTIC business Angel has intensively supported us with his knowledge and his network in the start–up phase of Contovista. The support was at least as valuable as the investment

We have 2 SICTIC members invested into our company. As former entrepreneurs with experience in Europe and Asia , they both bring a lot of knowledge into our company. For us was very important to secure “smart” money, so we can accelerate the growth of our company. Also we were very satisfied with the overall investment process, everything went very smooth and fast.
