Aequitec has secured new investors for its digital tool, which supports SMEs in efficiently holding shareholder meetings. At the same time, it ensures all compliance regulations and safety standards are upheld. The still paper-based share registers are transferred to a modern software application. The app ensures the company processes are always handled in exact accordance with the ownership structure.
Aequitec was founded by an experienced team in 2020. Key shareholders are the Swiss startup accelerator F10 as well as its members the SIX Group and Generali Insurance. “At F10 Investment, we like to see our investments set up professionally from the start,” explained Managing Director James Sanders in an article on startupticker.ch, adding, they “therefore encourage our investments to use a professional solution like Aequitec early on”.
Furthermore, the Swiss scale-up Deon Digital has taken a stake in Aequitec. In a podcast introducing the app on the Handelszeitung newspaper in October 2020, the CEO and Mitgründer Johannes Schneebacher referred to Deon Digital as “our parent company”.
“Our investors’ trust in our solution shows that the topic of corporate governance continues to grow in importance,” said Johannes Schneebacher on startupticker.ch. “Our platform promotes the necessary digitization of corporations and the funding from our investors is confirmation of this.” mm
