Our program supports 20 startups per year at ETH Zürich, EPFL and the University of St. Gallen. Apply to get CHF 25,000 in initial capital, coaching sessions with professional investors, and access a supportive student founder community.
You go through a selection process that consists in 3 meetings with our student investors, leading to a selection decision.
If selected, we wire you CHF 25,000 that you can use to pay your first business expenses and incorporate your company.
We then invite you to VC-related workshops and regular office hours with the investment team of Wingman Ventures.
You also receive an invite to a Slack group that includes all our student investors and dozens of student founders.
Finally, you can add our logo on your website and pitch deck to show that you convinced a tier-one VC fund at a super early stage.
Wingman Campus Fund was the first VC that reached out to us when we had just started Adaptyv Bio at EPFL a few months earlier. When we joined Y Combinator, Wingman Campus Fund invested in us as well, and through them, we got in touch with Wingman Ventures who ended up leading our 2.5M pre-seed round.
Thanks to the Wingman Campus Fund investment, we were able to drive Sallea to the next level and incorporate the company. Additionally, we highly appreciated the professional support and guidance of the Wingman Ventures team in this first and valuable relationship with an investor.
Rapidata received an investment from Wingman Campus Fund, and the experience has been great. The team has been uncomplicated and supportive, providing us with the resources and network to help us grow and scale our business.
We write a quarterly newsletter for enthusiasts of the program. Read about our news and activities on Swiss campuses.
