Memorable Quotes

“You’ve got to have the right mindset. Are you angel material? Do you have a long-term view? You can’t be in it just for the money, but if you are, can you afford to lose it? What’s your tolerance for risk and failure? You can have the thrill of victory but also the agony of defeat. Most importantly, you’ve got to have respect and love for entrepreneurs and startups.”

“In Switzerland, getting to an exit is not a matter of two years. Usually, it takes more, at least five to seven years. We’re a deep tech nation and that’s bound to make things slower.”
