Please note that we have to postpone this event because of the coronavirus!


The focus of the event is to consider and discuss various private debt aspects. We are happy to be joined by experts from the private markets industry as well as representatives from innovation platforms. We will start with a general overview of the current (global) private debt landscape and also take a closer look at debt financing instruments commonly available in the Swiss market environment, before we discuss select aspects in relation to challenges and opportunities for start-ups as well as small and medium-sized enterprises. Last but not least, we want to demonstrate platinn's and Inno-suisse's efforts and capabilities when it comes to financing solutions.

At the end, our keynote speakers will be available for a moderated discussion as well as inputs and queries from the audience.
