Helvetica Capital is an independent, entrepreneurial investor focusing on companies in Switzerland and neighbouring regions.
Helvetica Capital provides capital and advises both entrepreneurs and investors on financing and succession solutions. Our vision is of supporting companies to achieve sustainable long-term growth through active strategic and operational development and the contribution of relevant expertise from our network.
Helvetica Capital was founded in August 2015. It emerged from the spin-out of the team behind Credit Suisse Entrepreneur Capital Ltd., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Credit Suisse (Switzerland) Ltd. Since 2010, we have built up an attractive portfolio of direct investments in Swiss companies for Credit Suisse Entrepreneur Capital Ltd., which we continue to manage and develop as exclusive advisors.
True to our goal of sustainably promoting Swiss entrepreneurship, Helvetica Capital set up the Entrepreneur Investor Platform in 2015. The purpose of the Entrepreneur Investor Platform is to bring together the most successful Swiss entrepreneurs with the most attractive SMEs.
Furthermore, since early 2019, we have held the mandate for managing the direct investments of the Swiss Entrepreneurs Fund. The Swiss Entrepreneurs Fund accompanies promising Swiss growth companies with capital and expertise and thereby makes a significant contribution to promoting Switzerland as a business and innovation hub.
