From Silicon Valley to Zurich: Investor Alexander Fries about the European and American venture capital business.

Alexander Fries is a seasoned businessman and venture capitalist. Having moved from his native Switzerland to Silicon Valley over a decade ago, Fries began helping other Europeans crossing the Atlantic to navigate in Silicon Valley. Now he runs Polytech Ecosystems Ventures, a fund dedicated to just that. Alex will come to Switzerland in November and offers to share his thoughts on the differences between European and American investments; why it’s better to raise more than you initially thought; and why Europe needs to market itself a whole lot better.
