Business Angel of the Year

Through their experience, network and risk capital, Business Angels form an important basis for the realisation of innovative ideas of high potential start-up companies. They are committed to being mentors of the emerging industries and are providing a necessary foundation for the long term, successful development of an economy.

Up to now, the Business Angel culture in Switzerland has established itself with hesitation. Through the Business Angel of The Year Initiative and the publicly held annual Election of the Swiss Business Angel of The Year we would like to contribute to further network integration of Swiss Business Angels in order to advance the investment into innovative high-growth companies of this country.
