Start-ups on the Way to Success

In this section Swiss High Tech companies on the way to success are presented.

The criteria for selection were:

  • closing of one or several financial rounds > CHF 1 Mio. and/or
  • having paying customers or a product ready for the market entry.

One other interesting aspect of the presented companies is, that all of them took advantage of most Swiss support organizations and/or got involved with investors linked to CTI Invest.
