Applications open for Venture DAY Zurich


Three Venture DAYs are planned this year. The first will take place in Zurich on 18 April. Investors can register, deep-tech start-ups can apply for a pitching slot now.


The Venture DAYs organised by Startup INVEST have been completely redesigned last year. Innovations included multiple stages for start-ups from different verticals, 1:1 meetings and keynotes. Those innovations were very well received. Last year 250 participants attended the event in Zurich, more than 300 1:1 meetings took place and 22 high quality start-ups pitched.

This year Startup INVEST will organize three Venture DAYs again. The first event is planned for 18 April in Zurich, followed by Lausanne and Lugano later in 2018. Registration for the Zurich event is already open for investors. Start-ups can also apply for a pitching slot now. Startups of the following verticals will pitch: Digital Health, Bio-, Med-, Micro-& Nanotech, ICT, Fin-/Insuretech and Cleantech along with start-ups from accelerators. In the morning keynotes by Startup INVEST and digitalswitzerland are planned. In addition, the General Assembly of Startup INVEST will be held. More information on the new website of the events . 

Starting this year, Startup INVEST is working closely together with the digitalswitzerland. The highlight of the year will be again the Startup DAYs which will take place on 25 and 26 September in Bern. More information about Startup INVEST can be found on the website of the organisation which is also new.
