A concise startupper’s guide

Spicehaus Partners AG is presenting a concise startupper’s guide that covers many of the pressing questions around: 

  • How to assess your own company (valuation, potential)?
  • How to build a strong team (co-founders, employees)?
  • How to pitch your company, product or services (pitchbook)?
  • How to grow your company with external investors (fundraising)?
  • How to keep investors happy?
The presentation uses concrete examples based on Spicehaus’ experiences and invites the participants to an open discussion.   Spicehaus Partners AG is an independent Swiss venture capital investor. The partners built-up their own companies as founders and entrepreneurs, invested privately in venture capital since 2012 and have a long-lasting experience in the private equity and investment banking industry. The investment strategy is centred around Swiss startups with a validated business model in the area of digital transformation. Spicehaus is a hands-on investor and actively accompanies its portfolio companies on their road to success.
