There’s more to Switzerland than skiing, chocolate and endless beauty. Dr. Peter Vogel spoke to TechCrunch at Davos 2016 and argued that Switzerland is a great place to startup a company. But of course he would say that. Vogel is management and the Scientific Lead of a foundation dedicated to promoting startups in Switzerland.
Vogal points out that Switzerland has a long history of churning out successful companies. He admits late stage capital is tough to come by in the small country, but there is an active network of angel investors and early stage VCs. Plus, there’s the location of Switzerland. It’s in the middle of everything.
And then there’s the skiing.
