A French platform of startup investors is gaining ground in western Switzerland.
The financiers have big plans for local fintechs
Angelsquare will be active in Switzerland this March, according to a Wednesday announcement. The Paris platform, founded in 2016, is said to unite around 600 French venture capitalists. Last year she wants to have raised more than 60 million euros for 76 start-up companies.
Soon in Zug and Zurich?
Among them were various Fintech and Insurtech companies. In Switzerland, the French also want to address startups from the IT, biotech, cleantech and blockchain sectors, as the saying goes. Angelsquare also focuses on sustainable business and impact business ideas.
The venture capitalists are the first to settle in Geneva and Lausanne, but then want to roll up quickly the rest of Switzerland, as it was called. On the menu of the French is the startup scene in Zurich, Basel, Bern, Lucerne, Zug and Neuchâtel.
