As founders and entrepreneurs, we know what it takes to build a company from scratch. Teddy was part of the team building-up the fintech start-up CreditGate24, which is today the largest lending platform in Switzerland. Daniel has co-founded dakuro, an independent trading company for personal safety equipment that caters to the largest Swiss distributors.
We have a strong background in the institutional world with more than 30 years of combined experience in private equity and investment banking (including Partners Group, BNP Paribas). This gives us a deep corporate network that we leverage on behalf of our portfolio companies.
