with our Syndicate


Support and/or invest in Start-Ups with us

As a supporter, you can provide your services to make Start-Ups investment ready and/or you can also choose to invest as part of a syndicate.

Why support and invest in our Start-Ups?

Small ticket sizes

Invest as little as CHF 5’000, because we believe in smart money, not big money.

Transparent fee structure

We only take a closing fee and a performance fee (15% of the return made by the syndicate) and no management fee. We are a not-for-profit association so any proceeds are directly re-invested into our programs and initiatives.

Vetted deals

We’ve followed the founders in our community for a long time and can give you access to exceptional deals without you having to do the scouting yourself.
