Cofundit held successfully it's Second Cofundit event and the first in the Swiss French region of Switzerland. The event was held in the newly built Rolex Learning Center of the EPFL.
Investors and Entrepreneurs had the chance to learn more about Cofundit and it's upcoming lauch of it's platform at the end of June. Investors in the Swiss French region were also able to meet with the Entrepreneurs of Cleoo and to hear how they expect to revolutionize online ordering.
The Service de l'économie, du logement et du tourisme (SELT) of the Canton of Vaud has agreed to financially support the development of Cofundit and in particular the development of it's innovative platform to support Crowdfunding for Small and Medium Enterprises. We thank the Canton of Vaud for their support and look forward to working with them.
Cofundit participated as one of the Start-ups in the Venture 2010 contest held in Switzerland and sponsored by McKinsey. This was an excellent opportunity to share our crowdfunding platform development with various interested entrepreneurs and investors. We had the opportunity to meet with several entrepreneurs who were interested in crowdfunding as a fundraising mechanism for their projects. We are following up with several of the leads we developed here to have them join our platform when we go live at the end of June.
Today Cofundit held it's first launch event, introducing Cofundit, as well as our first Entrepreneur Cleoo to interested investors in the Zürich area. The event, which took place in Glattpark in a converted plant, was a success with attendees learning about the power of crowdfunding, and having the chance to ask questions on how the Cofundit platform works. There was also a good opportunity to pursue further discussions with the Entrepreneurs from Cleoo.
Registrations are growing for both our launch events in Zurich and Lauanne.
We also have finalized the location for our Lausanne Launch event, which will take place in the new Rolex Learning Center on the campus of EPFL. We remind everyone that this is a great opportunity to find more about our company, our platform, and the Entrepreneurs we are fundraising for.
This is a great networking event and a chance to share some good food, company, and learn more about interesting investment opportunities.
