Climate protection through innovative technologies

The Technology Fund offers loan guarantees to Swiss companies whose novel products contribute to a sustainable reduction in greenhouse gas emissions

Others about us

Jacqueline Ruedin Rüsch

We have several companies in our portfolio that have either received backing from or are in the process of applying to the Technology Fund. They are all grateful for this non-dilutive form of financing and are thrilled that this is an option in Switzerland. Most other European countries do not have such a flexible solution on offer.

The provision of funding to climate-tech start-ups when little other support is present is an essential role played by the Technology Fund. Enabling climate-impact startups to make their way to market is a goal we share with the Technology Fund.

For Switzerland, it is imperative that we make use of research findings from academia to establish the globally successful companies of tomorrow, and thus play our part in solving the climate problem. The Technology Fund plays a critical role in this endeavor.

I collaborate regularly with the Technology Fund, finding good crossover between our investment themes. The Technology Fund has probably the largest portfolio of sustainability companies in Switzerland. Its backing brings early credibility to companies both on investment and CO2 impact qualification.

Several of my portfolio startups that reduce the CO2 footprint have been able to increase their revenues without further dilution of the founders, thanks to a loan guarantee from the Technology Fund.

Cleantech startups are struggling to get finance! In this field project cycles are long and the return on investment appears not tomorrow, but the day after tomorrow. In this context, the Technology Fund offers essential support to Swiss companies.
