Interview with Manuel Hug, Co-Founder and CEO of Soflow.
What is the idea behind Soflow?
The idea behind Soflow is to change the commuting style of the people in the city. It will make your day more flexible and save you time, facing the problems of urban transportation.
Why did you decided against classic VC funding?
We decide to do a crowd-investing campaign rather than a VC or angel investment. It was faster for us, and we are more independent.
How will you raise funds in the future?
Our next financing round will be an equity VC round. We hope to close this round in the next six to nine months. We hope to see more seasoned Swiss investors to think big and take risks for international business, and not only invest in the classical Swiss sectors such as fintech or medtech, perhaps going towards hardware or tech. We would like to see in Switzerland more seasoned investors to think big and take risks for international business.
What is your vision?
Our vision for the future is to be part of the micro-mobility market, and have approximately 20 present chairs around the world, and help the people have a more fun commute.”
