Venture Kick

Website
Description

Venture Kick is a venture philantropic initiative: entrepreneurs are offered financing, exposure, credibility, boot camps and access to a top network. The first stage of CHF 10,000 is offered as a non-repayable grant, where the entrepreneurs make a moral pledge to return the money when they are successful. The second CHF 40,000 and final CHF 100,000 kicks are offered as convertible loans, at startup-friendly conditions, which convert (at CHF 50,000 or 150,000 respectively) at the company's next significant equity round. Venture Kick reinvests all proceeds of success contributions, loan repayments and share sales into promoting the next generation of entrepreneurs. Read the conditions of participations, or register and join the kickers briefing day (no commitment) to know more and get ready for the Kick!
