We need more Swiss “First Movers”
Switzerland reported record venture capital investments last year. The later-stage segment, however, is still challenging. Whereas in the EU, there are VC funds through EIB as market failure is assumed – its hard for later stage companies to compete with Silicon Valley – there is no such support by a comparable institution in Switzerland. So the swiss solution has to be market based.
Please find attached an interview about the Swiss VC ecosystem which was published recently in Venture Capital Magazin discussing this issue.
