Cultural diversity celebration at HEMEX. We have recently increased our workforce because luckily, we are expanding.
“We embrace diversity because in the international environment that we work in, it just feels natural to be a multicultural team.”
– Pascal Winnen, CEO of HEMEX.
Diversity and inclusion are key words in our modern, globalized world. Several research articles confirm that companies who focus on bringing different people together, improve the quality of teamwork. However, cultural diversity is not just a management trend, it is a type of organizational culture that defines a company. This organization allows all members to pursue their aspirations without being inhibited by gender, race, nationality, disability, age, or sometimes just being a parent. Diversity is the beauty of going to work and being assessed by your achievements, not by other qualities irrelevant to your performance. A multicultural workplace provides a range of opportunities, both for the company and its workers.
At HEMEX, we embrace diversity, and we encourage everyone else to do the same. Diversity not only influences our organizational performance but also significantly improves and creates a great working environment. Having a team made up of different people, each with their own vision, background, education, and origin, binds our team at all levels.
Our current team consists of people from many different countries in the world and we speak more than 20 languages. We strongly believe in gender diversity, which is why 60% of our workforce consists of hard-working women.
We are very proud of the HEMEX team. Therefore, over the course of the coming weeks we will be publishing a series of articles on our team members. This will allow you to get to know the great people behind all the hard work we do.

Hemex was founded as a private investment and consulting company headquartered close to the Basel global life sciences hub. Our primary focus is to bring innovative drugs, medical devices, and in–vitro diagnostics to the market. We specialized in supporting early-stage start-ups, offering tailored solutions to accelerate projects into successful and sustainable businesses. Additionally, HEMEX helps and supports start-ups to find non-dilutive and dilutive funding. We are now gaining fast recognition, and partly this is because we are transforming the culture by seamlessly bridging the gap between investors and entrepreneurs.
