The Swiss Fintech Investor Day is an event is for angel investors, family offices, venture capitalists, and corporate ventures that want to invest in fintech startups and also for aspiring angel investors that can learn from the sessions provided before the pitching sessions.

The first edition took place on November 14th, 2016, and became the go-to event for Swiss seed and early-stage fintech startups looking for funding. With a funding success rate of often more than 50% for those 12 startups that pitch every year, it has been well established as an excellent matchmaking event for startups and angel investors.
