This masterclass will explore startup funding under a new light, both from an entrepreneur and from an investor perspective. As a startup, find out who to talk to and where to find money. As an investor starting with as low as CHF 20,000, know how to mitigate risks and have good chances of making excellent money, where to find good deals and how to structure and track your investments.
The goal is to lift the veil on startup investing and share insider knowledge on what happens behind the scenes when individuals invest in money-making portfolios of startups. What are the strategies, who can participate (spoiler alert: you don't need to be a millionaire) and how you can ride the wave and make a difference in the economic landscape around you while co-creating the future.
This masterclass will contain an overview of the financing landscape for startups and uncover the financial returns amongst a group of 150 investors having invested in early stage companies for years. We will hear testimonials from investors and an entrepreneur, participate in a funding exercise and glean insights from a panel of experts invited to answer your questions.
Participant entrepreneurs: you are encouraged to bring a short presentation of your endeavor that you will present while budding investors find out the criteria to assess enterprises and maximise financial and societal returns.
