Join Us

We are partnering with M Accelerator in Los Angeles for a unique virtual pitch event featuring a selected group of Startups from our 2022 Startup Bootcamps.

Swiss Startups Cryfe, Fitworld, Modulos, Nobank, Parithera and Veezoo will pitch in front of a panel and audience of Los Angeles based VCs and investors on Thursday, December 8, 2022. This new initiative by Swissnex in San Francisco gives those participating in the 2022 Bootcamps a unique chance to make connections to potential investors in the US and gives them additional visibility on the West Coast.

M Accelerator is a well established player in the LA startup ecosystem and many of the founders participating in their personalized program have an international background with 60% of them coming from outside the United States.

Meet our cohort:
Yu Zhang, Founder and CEO of Fitworld
Caroline Matteucci, Founder and CEO of Cryfe
Antoine Herzog, Co-Founder and CEO of Parithera
Mario Leoni, CEO of Nobank
Marcos Monteiro, CEO of Veezoo
Kevin Schawinski, CEO of Modulos

The Los Angeles’s edition of our Pitch Events is the first event of a broader roadshow in emerging US West Coast hubs such as Austin, Los Angeles, and Seattle.
