Switzerland needs more entrepreneurial investors & co-investment

Nicolas Berg of RedAlpine in Zurich has a great presentation about the momentum in the Swiss early-stage Ecosystem (embedded below). He says:

Wanted investor types for Switzerland

1. Serial entrepreneurs with at least one top exit

2. Micro VC funds

    • managed by serial entrepreneurs (age 25-45) and successful angels
    • very active investment approach in seed and early-stage
    • diversified portfolio of 15+
    • Entrepreneurial LPs (serial entrepreneurs 50+, family offices)

3. Co-investment and side-car funds

    • less active or passive investment manager approach
    • government and corporate funded
    • driven by economic impact, not returns only
