The SICTIC Investor Day is a matchmaking event where ICT startups pitch to find experienced investors and supporters. The event language is English. We currently run SICTIC Investor Day events across Switzerland, with an average audience size of ~100 investors per event.

We encourage startups that fulfil our investment criteria to submit their projects and apply to pitch for funding at a SICTIC Investor Day. We offer this service as well as the pitching at one of our events free of charge to startups. SICTIC does not charge any investment fees from startups. We do not invest ourselves nor do we hold shares in startups.

 

 

How it works:

  • For each SICTIC Investor Day, a jury will select the eight most promising startups for pitching at the event.
  • Your application will be considered for events taking place up to 6 months from the submission date, after which will remain visible to SICTIC Investors but removed from the event pitch applications pipeline.
  • In case your project is selected for an event, we will send you additional information at the email address you provide in the application form, approximately 2 weeks before the event for which you were selected to pitch.
  • If you have not been selected to pitch within 6 months and you would like to be reconsidered for future events, please resubmit your updated factsheet and documents below and mark your application as resubmission.

Please have the SICTIC Startup Factsheet completed and your pitch deck ready before starting to fill in your SICTIC Funding Application form below.

 

 

You can also upload a video pitch, a business plan, or any 3 additional documents that you would like to share with our Investors and the SICTIC Jury. We strongly recommend you submit a Video Pitch (60 – 90 sec) for higher visibility and better chances of being selected to pitch at an upcoming SICTIC Investor Day event. Please find below the video requirements should you decide to submit one.

 

Video Requirements

You can submit a maximum 90 sec video spoken by the founders in English without any slides and including the following explanation:
1) who are the founders
2) which concrete value do you provide to the customer
3) who are your customers and where are they based geographically
4) why do you have a scalable business and how large is your addressable target market
5) what sets you apart from the competition

 

 

If you are not sure whether you fulfil the investment criteria or you have any other questions, feel free to reach out to info@sictic.ch.

Mandatory SICTIC Factsheet.

To get exposure to our investors, there’s no need for a lengthy business plan. All you need to do is to fill in our SICTIC Startup Factsheet and submit it together with your pitch deck.

Download and fill in the SICTIC Startup Factsheet before filling in the application below.

Mandatory Pitch Deck.

The purpose of your pitch deck is to stimulate interest, rather than explaining every aspect of your project. You can reference from the SICTIC factsheet to the pitch deck.

We strongly recommend covering the core pitch deck topics in 10-15 slides, similar to the Guy Kawasaki’s “Only 10 Slides You Need in Your Pitch”
