ALMOST 200 MILLION FRANCS INVESTED

ALMOST 200 MILLION FRANCS INVESTED

Total amount invested in Cleantechs start-ups since 2006 is close to CHF 191 million, of which 23.8 (12%) in the pre-seed phase, 22.1 (11%) in the seed phase, 19.5 (10%) in the early phase, 88.5 (46%) in Series A and 40.6 (21%) in Series B. It is interesting to note that the first three financing phases have relatively similar investments of around $20 million over the period under consideration. Unsurprisingly, however, the amounts are much larger for Series A and B, even if the number of start-ups involved is limited. The fields of eco-mobility, photovoltaics, agritechs and hybrid technologies have benefited the most. If we analyse the investments in the pre-seed, seed and early stages, we notice that photovoltaics, and the energy sector in general – apart from energy efficiency – has received limited amounts. Advanced materials, smartgrids, water treatment, agronomy and forestry and hybrid technologies are the sectors that have received the largest amounts. CleantecAlps Report 2017
