We have previously explained how to match a SAFE to Swiss law. Leveraging on this analysis, we have adapted Y Combinator's template (with a valuation cap) to work for Swiss stock corporations. As explained in our earlier post, our approach is to make the SAFE a convertible loan under Swiss law. The loan converts into equity at the occasion of the next equity financing round. Our template also provides for subordination of the loan, which is junior to other debts of the startup.
The template has been tested in practice. We successfuly implemented an equity financing round for our client with US investors based on such a SAFE.
