75th Society3 Entrepreneurs & Investors day
More than 7,000 people attended our events in San Francisco, Zurich, Berlin, Munich, Lucerne and Cannes since we started with a small event in San Francisco in 2014.
15:00 Investors Meeting
Most European angel investors have not been nearly as successful as their Silicon Valley counterparts. Mostly due to inconsistent or missing investor strategies. In this Investor meeting we want to share how Silicon Valley Angels invest:
- successful investment strategies
- co-investment models that work
- startup evaluation and selection processes
- valuation consideration
- getting up to par with round sizes
- Mentoring and coaching startups as Angel
16:00 Accelerator Business Demo Day
We are completing our fifth batch (Flight 5) which is our first Flight in Switzerland. From a total of 68 applicants, the six best joined the accelerator program in October 2016. The four best will present their business to selected investors.
All teams have been able to develop a disruptive business model, have been able to shorten their time to market by one year and most generated revenue within their first six month.
The companies consist of a founders team with complementary skills and a vision to go big.
An art platform disrupting the art business by giving artists a way to participate in the value development of their art.
A online group and community platform for businesses and special interest groups. The team developed a disruptive business model by participating in the monetization model of their smart communities.
Building virtual ATMs allowing anybody to get cash from theoretically everybody else. The disruptive business model will replace any conventional ATM.
Providing the freshest baby food possible. Their disruptive business model will allow them to compete with even the largest baby food manufacturer by going with their “fab-less production model”
Investors will be able to meet the teams and learn more about their business vision and why they believe they can enter a global market with their solution.
