About Helvetica Capital AG:

Helvetica Capital AG was founded in 2015 and arose from the team behind SVC Ltd. for Risk Capital for SMEs, a wholly owned subsidiary of Credit Suisse. Since 2010, our team at SVC Ltd. has built up an attractive investment portfolio with direct investments in Swiss SMEs in the venture to later stage area, which Helvetica Capital continues to supervise and further develop as exclusive advisor to SVC Ltd. Helvetica Capital AG itself is independent of Credit Suisse. In addition, Helvetica Capital AG has built up the Entrepreneur-Investor-Platform and has already successfully completed five transactions. The Entrepreneur-Investor-Platform connects the most successful entrepreneurs and investors of Switzerland with attractive SMEs and thus ensures an active, long-term and independent development of these companies. Helvetica Capital AG should not be considered a traditional private equity player, but acts as a long-term partner to companies, bringing with it the expertise and network of its entrepreneurial families. The latter, together with Helvetica Capital, directly participate as co-investors and are not dependent on a quick exit.

Helvetica Capital is an equal opportunity employer; committed to building a team that represents a range of backgrounds, perspectives and skills. Helvetica Capital's success is built on innovation, curiosity and diversity.
