Company News: Supertrends secures CHF 1.5m in Series A financing round
Today we are pleased to inform our clients, followers and partners that we have closed our Series A financing round of 1.5 million Swiss francs at a pre-money valuation of 6.5 million Swiss francs.
The capital increase was closed with investments from a small group of international investors living in Switzerland, all of whom have significant experience with venture investments as well as in scaling growth companies.
The announcement comes amid a period of rapid expansion in our company, as we also recently opened a sales office in Copenhagen, revealed new strategic partnerships, delivered our first white label software to a hedge fund, and appointed experienced banker and entrepreneur Alfred W. Moeckli as chairman of the board. We plan to use this capital to accelerate sales, support the company’s expansion to new markets, and propel the continued development of our products and services. Following the release of our products Supertrends Pro, Supertrends White Label and Dynamic Reports, we are now particularly looking forward to the official launch of our AI tool Supertrends Lab, as well as our own war room concept, Supertrends Strategy & War Rooms – both of which are expected to release in the coming months.
Commenting on the capital increase, our Chairman of the Board Alfred W. Moeckli wrote: “Supertrends is revolutionizing how information about innovation, trends, and technological breakthroughs are collected, conveyed, and applied in practice. After a few years of product development followed by months of co-development with various interested organizations, we are now ready for our commercial breakthrough. The focus from here will be on sales as well as international expansion from Denmark and Switzerland to the UK and USA. The capital increase enables us to take this next, important step in Supertrends’ development.“
Our founder and board member Lars Tvede, added: “In my opinion, we are filling a large gap in the market, which I myself have suffered under for decades as an investor and entrepreneur. While followers of the financial markets have access to excellent information services such as Bloomberg, where all information about the financial markets is consolidated in one place – and updated in real-time – it is almost impossible to follow the world’s exponentially accelerating innovation. Supertrends solves that problem.”
He continued: “Here at the beginning of our commercial breakthrough, I am really happy that the original shareholders and I have got a number of very experienced “wingmen” with significant entrepreneurial and financial experience into the circle of owners, who can help us internationalize the company and open doors. My experience from previous projects is that such co-investors can mean the difference between success and failure.”
To conclude, we’d like to share our appreciation for everyone who has been following and participating in our journey so far. We look forward to sharing everything we are planning over the coming months.
