As the independent and financial return driven venture arm of TX Group, TX Ventures has built a strong investment track record with investments such as the challenger bank neon, the alternative investment platform Stableton, the real estate price intelligence software Pricehubble, and exits such as the mortgage platform Moneypark.
During recent years, TX Ventures has transformed into a leading FinTech investor in Switzerland and is launching today its first dedicated CHF 100 Million fund. The fund is structured as a single Limited Partnership, and its sole investor is TX Group.
TX Ventures has set the base to launch its new FinTech fund by disposing of non-core assets (such as the sale of Olmero to Sterling Square / TA Associates), implementing a professional investment committee, and clearly defining its financial return oriented investment mandate.
TX Ventures’ mandate, to invest in financial technology start-ups (FinTech, InsurTech, Crypto) in Europe with preference for the DACH region, has its focus on early stage investments (Seed to Series A) with initial tickets ranging from CHF0.5m to CHF5m.
The team, consisting of Krzysztof Bialkowski, Jens Schleuniger, David Schnider and Markus Rommel, has already built a strong portfolio of Swiss based FinTechs, while being supported by experts in the areas of marketing, cyber security, tech, communication, legal and finance. TX Ventures believes that - despite the current economic headwinds - the current market environment offers great investment opportunities. The team has a clear long term ambition to become one of the leading early stage FinTech investors in Europe, a growing and sizable market for FinTech.
The TX Ventures investment committee is chaired by Romy Schnelle, Partner at Hightech Gründerfonds (HTGF) and complemented by well known Fintech Founder Miriam Wohlfarth, Sandro Macchiacchini (COO of TX Group), Daniel Mönch (CSO of TX Group) and Olivier Rihs (Board Member SMG and JobCloud).
