EPFL Alumni invites you to join its start-up investment event organized in partnership with Business Angels Switzerland (BAS), one of the largest Business Angel clubs in Switzerland. The event will take place at L’Epicure (EPFL campus) on Wednesday, February 19, 2020.

The first part of the event is a conference presenting «IOT in the digital manufacturing» by Georges Kotrotsios VP Marketing & Business Development, CSEM.

The second par of the event is an investment dinner exploring investment opportunities in innovative companies.
Since the beginning of 2015, EPFL Alumni and BAS have joined forces to present EPFL’s fast growing start-up projects to local business angels. The collaboration aims at helping promising entrepreneurs to access capital while giving the opportunity to alumni to familiarize themselves with the Swiss business angels ecosystem. Over the past few years, EPFL start-ups raised a record amount of private capital (285 million Swiss francs in 2019).

You are welcome to join one or both parts of the event. Attendees will typically be BAS members, EPFL alumni and start-up entrepreneurs.
