CHF 3.5 Million Invested In Investiere
August 23, 2016
At SELISE, we aim for excellence by delivering products that not only fulfil our clients’ specifications but also strengthen our idea of touching lives through technological co-creations.
The story of SELISE and investiere goes back to 2012- when the two company founders’ paths crossed and investiere was still a very basic online platform. Today, investiere has evolved into an elaborate crowdinvesting platform supporting a complete VC investment cycle starting from the inception which means search, selection, due diligence and collaboration up until the startup’s quarterly financial reporting process.
When one of our partners make it to the headlines for all the right reasons, we know we have made something that we can be proud of and its time to bring the champagne bottles out.
‘ZKB participates in investiere’s CHF3.5 million financing round.’
investiere.ch has just successfully closed a financing round with Zürcher Kantonalbank. Announced on 20 Aug 2016, this financing round of CHF 3.5 million represents an important fintech investment in Switzerland and SELISE is thrilled to have been an important partner for this glory.
investiere.ch and Zürcher Kantonalbank are among the most active venture capital providers in the Swiss market today. Martin Scholl, CEO of Zürcher Kantonalbank, commented: “We decided to invest in investiere.ch based on the team and technology behind the platform. The digitalisation of the venture capital market offers attractive growth potential and also creates opportunities for the further development of our own financing activities in areas such as SME financing.”
investiere.ch is a start-up investment platform that brings together entrepreneurs, experts, and investors, to aid in the growth of promising European start-ups. The intricate process of developing the software behind investiere.ch is being handled by a team of developers, user experience designers and quality assurance engineers from SELISE who dedicatedly worked through the years to bring about the global recognition that investiere.ch enjoys today.
SELISE has provided a tech stack for investiere that has been largely praised. Adhering to an agile development approach, there is a dedicated effort to push out new releases every two weeks of development since more than four years.
