This year’s Investor Summit Liechtenstein took place on Wednesday as a digital event for the first time. According to a press release, the event organizers welcomed more participants to the Investor Summit Liechtenstein than ever before. In total, 400 investors, decision-makers and would-be founders of start-ups dropped by to watch presentations from eight start-ups and growth firms. In addition, a new target group including “reputable investment firms, family offices and business angel clubs” was accessed. The aim of this event is to bring together winning ideas and financial capital.
“Only those who invest can profit from their investments in future”, commented Daniel Risch, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Economic Affairs, in his address to the event. This applies to both private individuals and the state itself. For this reason, Liechtenstein can today already be regarded as a “first-class partner in terms of start-ups and the realization of revolutionary ideas”.
The jury selected eight start-ups from a total of 50 applicants from Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Austria and Germany to present their business models via live stream. The business ideas ranged from digital solutions for financial service providers (Elucidate) and innovative industrial solutions (Matriq) all the way through to autonomous subsea drones (Subdron) and photovoltaic systems for urban areas (Urbanbox), as detailed in the press release. The remaining four start-ups had their sights set on innovative digital concepts (DAC6 Tracker, Futurae, OneVisage and Polypoly).
The Investor Summit is sponsored by government of Liechtenstein. Businesses and organizations such as the Hilti Family Trust and Municipality of Schaan also help to support the event. The main event partners are EquityPitcher, Red Leafs Tax Advisory and the prosperity company, while the organizers include Eventagentur Skunk and the Liechtenstein Investment Market Association.
