Wingman Ventures is investing CHF 60 million in Swiss tech start-ups in the seed stage to help support them in building up their business in the crucial early years.

“Wingman Ventures is ready to make a mark,” Pascal Mathis wrote in a LinkedIn post. He founded the Zurich-based start-up fund together with Lukas Weder, his Eat.ch co-founder, and Alex Stöckli, former COO at Gärtnerei and a senior investment manager at Creathor Ventures.

The fund is backed by several prominent Swiss tech founders, including the founders of Digitec/Galaxus, Bexio, Duolingo, u-blox, Xovis, Netcentric, VIU, Doodle, Getyourguide and Contovista.

Wingman Ventures will provide start-ups with access to more than 150 international venture capital funds and enable efficient fundraising at the growth stage.
