Startup Invest is organizing the next Venture Day event on March 22 at Westhive, Zurich and online hosting up to 100 guests. The matchmaking event offers early and later stage Swiss deeptech startups a platform to pitch and connect with investors, corporates and support organizations in the Swiss startup ecosystem. Startups also have the opportunity to schedule 1:1 meetings on-site or virtually to get feedback and consultation. 

Eight startups in the verticals Autonomous Systems, Sustainable Tech, ICT/Fintech and Healthtech will pitch to the audience. The selected startups are:
