HYDROGEN, AUGMENTED REALITY, PLANT-BASED MEAT, QUANTUM COMPUTING…

Every day, new technologies reshape the world we live in and take over large traditional industries.​​

At Synapse Invest, we have made the strategic choice to cover a wide range of themes as we consider that innovation is blurring the lines between various industries and that new businesses are increasingly interconnected.​

How to invest properly in Fintech without having a deep understanding of what’s going on in cybersecurity ? Or how to invest in connected and autonomous vehicles without monitoring advances in 5G and artificial intelligence ?​

This approach puts us in a unique position, at the nexus of many different technologies and industries. And the connections between them provide us with a wealth of information that we use for our investment decisions. ​

A TEAM WITH A RICH AND DIVERSE EXPERTISE AND EXPERIENCE

This enlarged vision finds its roots in many years of experience, specifically in the Technology, Media & Telecommunication industries. ​

Overall, the Synapse Invest team leverages a very complementary skillset that includes extensive financial analysis and asset management experience, engineering and coding skills, machine/deep learning techniques, business law and intellectual property.​

When it comes to investment decisions, we combine more than 40 years of experience in equity research (on both the buy- and the sell-side) and portfolio management for leading investment banks, private banks and asset management firms in Geneva and Paris.

​In addition, we have been involved in various equity capital market transactions (IPOs and capital increases in the Technology and Media sectors) as well as private equity deals in the Telecommunication industry.​

To gain industry insight, we constantly interact with our network of professionals made of startup founders, experts working for established companies and private equity investors. This distributed and heterogeneous knowledge base needs to be linked together – as synapses are linking neurons – in order to be valuably integrated into our investment process.​
