As part of the Venture Leaders program, the team will showcase Switzerland’s deeptech expertise and lay the foundation for global growth. Pitching in front of international investors, networking with experts and industry leaders, and learning from each other’s entrepreneurial experience will ensure the startups get ready for internationalization and fundraising success. Venture Leaders Deeptech 2021 is organized by Venturelab. The roadshow and any related events are supported by swissnex, EPF Lausanne, ETH Zurich, Helbling Group, Walder Wyss, the Canton of Vaud, and the Canton of Zurich.

The Venture Leaders are ready to take the first step toward their international expansion. The investor and business development roadshows for Swiss startups are specifically structured to help them achieve this goal. “The Venture Leaders Deeptech 2021 offer solutions for complex issues that will transform our future,” said Jordi Montserrat, managing partner at Venturelab. “Earlier this month, our alumn Climeworks launched the first industrial CO2 air capture and storage plant, so we are excited to provide this new generation of deeptech pioneers with experience and contacts to boost their ability to achieve their visions.”
