START Global and Helvetia prolong their partnership for START Summit 2018

St.Gallen, Switzerland, February 2018 – Once again Helvetia is supporting START Summit 2018. The Swiss insurance company is based in St.Gallen right beside the START offices and thus makes it a perfect match. Helvetia has shown great interest in investing in the digital future of Switzerland and beyond.

Helvetia has launched a Venture Fund with a total fund volume of CHF 55 million to invest into startups from the InsurTech segment as well as companies that could possibly provide complementary services for clients from Helvetia. Moreover, Helvetia fosters an own InsurTech Incubator and provides mentorship, working spaces and a broad network for own Helvetia startups. Year after year the insurance company proves to adapt to the digital transformation and has decided to largely invest in the growth of digital advancements in Europe and Switzerland.

During START Summit Helvetia will be part of a background session on InsurTech and hold a workshop for founders and students on how to find the right investor to finance your startup. Helvetia has shown commitment to advance the startup ecosystem by itself as well as by integrating their resources and knowledge into the platform START Global provides for founders, students, startups, investors and corporates.
