  • Expand your investment experiences to new sectors and technologies, to new networks?

Events

Nina Portier Reinhart, SICTIC Board Member and Diversity Program Leader, is regularly organising Lady Investor Dinner private events where she invites women who are business angels or aspiring business angels to discuss startup investments and their experience as business angels, as well as future investments.

We welcome all ladies interested in investing, and those attending do not need to be members of neither SICTIC or our diversity partners 100 Women In Finance or WomenWay. This is a networking event, aimed at creating awareness and also a stronger network for women investing.

If you would like to join us, please email diversity@sictic.ch and request a registration code.
