Top VC Companies in Crypto Valley, Zug
When startups come to Crypto Valley they are looking for many things - but one thing most of all: money. And that means finding investors. While the rapid rise of ICOs has (seemingly) put venture capital firms on the back foot, it would be a mistake to think that VCs don’t still play a role in the process.
With that said, it is a well-known fact that Europe and Switzerland as well does not have the same venture capital culture as Silicon Valley. Successful Swiss entrepreneurs and top-level management form a strong network of angel investors (some of whom are connected through SICTIC) - but this is only for early stages.
And for this reason, the list below (in no particular order) may serve as a valuable resource for international startups looking to connect with VCs - the few that there are.
Based in Zurich, Investiere has a background that is broader than blockchain and crypto, but their position in the Swiss scene makes them a force to be reckoned with.
INVESTMENTS: Beekeeper, Pregnolia, Astrocast
Another more traditional investment company with a reach beyond Switzerland itself, Redalpine is nonetheless a name to remember - especially as public ICOs cool off and startups look to “old-fashioned” VCs for support.
