Every year, Venturelab selects the four Venture Leader teams, a selection of the most promising Swiss-based startups with global ambitions and the potential to impact the world, for an international investor roadshow.
Ten startups have been chosen by a jury of investors as the Swiss National Startup Team for Venture Leaders Technology 2018 from over 110 applicants. The designated entrepreneurs will fly to Silicon Valley for a one week roadshow in March to accelerate their expansion into the US market and build an exceptional business network through meeting top notch investors and industry leaders in Silicon Valley, proudly showcasing Switzerland as a deep tech nation.
Switzerland, a truly deep tech nation
“The selection of Venture Leaders Technology 2018 reflects the impressive quality of Swiss startups and showcases Switzerland as a truly deep tech nation that can keep the pace with Silicon Valley” explains Stefan Steiner, Co-Managing Director of Venturelab. Venture Leader Technology alumni comprise high-flying startups such as Lemoptix (acquired by Intel), Faceshift (acquired by Apple), Composyt Light Labs (acquired by Intel), HouseTrip (acquired by TripAdvisor) , Dacuda (acquired by Magic Leap) and many more. The roadshow is offered thanks to the support of Rothschild, Kellerhals Carrard, Canton de Vaud, digitalswitzerland, EPF Lausanne, ETH Zurich, Gebert Rüf Stiftung and DPD.
