Finding funding for each stage of your business

Where to look & who to talk to
Obtaining the appropriate financing at each stage of your business journey is crucial. Our extensive experience in finding tailor-made funding solutions and investment for young businesses means we can help you make the right connections and find investors that are the perfect fit for your particular operation.

Since the birth of our foundation over twenty years ago, we have assisted over 250 companies in raising more than 1 billion CHF in investment funding.

Innosuisse (former CTI), European projects, foundations, research centers and the department of the Canton of Vaud for the funding of research projects and companies have also provided funding on many projects by matching the amount invested by private financial backers.
