Why get investment from Swisspreneur?

Apply to pitch
No fuss
We’re founders ourselves and we know what a time suck raising money can be. We want to make the process for closing your pre-seed round easy and fast for you. On average, our investments take 2-3 weeks to close.
Smart money
To get your idea off the ground, access to the right people is what counts. Through the syndicate, you can engage a larger group of experts without over expanding your cap table.
Follow up rounds
Through our larger network and our established social channels, we can give you exposure to create momentum for your follow up rounds.

What is the benefit of a syndicate?

The advantage of a syndicate is that you have one item on your cap table for a potentially large number of investors, and that's multiplied brainpower & network to get your idea off the ground.

How big are the ticket sizes?

We usually sign tickets between CHF 50k and 500k per deal.

In which stages & verticals do you invest?

We invest in pre-seed and seed Swiss-based companies without a specific vertical focus.

How can I apply for investment?

Click ‘Apply to Pitch’ and fill out the form.

How does the investment process work?

If you manage to pass all stages of our application process, we send out your case to our investor base. Usually, we have the final commitments ready within two to four weeks and can sign your term sheet.

Are there any costs involved?

There are no costs involved for the startup.

Can I get a list of names of the investors in the syndicate?

Due to privacy reasons, we cannot release the names of the investors in our syndicate.

Will each investor in the syndicate show up on my cap table?

No, only the syndicate as a whole will be shown on your cap table.

What happens after the round is closed?

After the round is closed, we expect you to keep the syndicate updated as you do with all of your investors. We’re also here to support you with advice, intros, access to our network (e.g. to investors for your next round), and events.

I have questions, who should I reach out to?

If you have applied and haven’t heard back, we normally get back to you within a week about the next steps. For any other inquiries, feel free to reach out to us via
