One of SICTIC’s main activities is to connect potential high-growth startups to our smart money investors. Our investor community consists of business angels and private investors who are looking to learn about investing in technology projects and want to invest in early-stage, Switzerland based, technology product startups.
SICTIC currently has over 420 investors in its community, which actively benefit from our services. The investors are approved by SICTIC’s board as individuals with the interest and capacity to make startup investments.
SICTIC Investor Profile
Many of our angel investors have an entrepreneurial background as founder, CEO, partner, or board member. We also work with family offices and venture capitalists that want to co-invest with angel investors.
SICTIC expects an investor to invest at least CHF 20’000.- per investment round that s/he decides to join. However, there is no formal obligation to participate in any investment round and also no requirement to visit our events.
Our angel investors share their knowledge, experience, and business network with the startups they invest in.
