The spin-off affiliated with the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich develops solutions to increase transparency in supply chains for consumer goods.

Haelixa has closed a financing round Zurich Cantonal Bank (ZKB) and investiere.ch were involved in the financing round as an existing shareholder and new investor respectively. Haelixa develops technologies, which can be used to trace products and materials. These aim in particular to increase the transparency of supply chains for consumer goods. According to the press release, Haelixa is planning to use the fresh capital to expand its sales, marketing and development teams.

While consumers want to know more about the origin of products and the processes in global supply chain, manufacturers are more interested in fighting fraud and ensuring they stand out from the competition, explains Michael Blank, Head of the Investment Team at investiere. Haelixa has developed a solution “that takes into account all of these aspects, is integrated in the product and which outclasses the existing technology”. Daniel Schoch, Head of Start-Up Finance at Zurich Cantonal Bank, also praised the fact that the technologies developed by Haelixa are “absolutely environmentally friendly” and contribute to increased sustainability.

Haelixa is a spin-off affiliated with the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich (ETH). The company is headquartered at ETH’s Innovation & Entrepreneurship Lab (ieLab).
