Great Kick-off Meeting For HEMEX’s New Format: Investment Showcase!

Galventa was the start-up selected to launch this new format, a series of events that will take place throughout the first three months of 2021


Our HEMEX Pitch Events that we frequently held in the last years have evolved into the online Webinars’ format and are now called Investment Showcase. At HEMEX, we firmly believe in a kind of event where the start-ups get the opportunity to tell potential investors not only about their projects but also about their dreams. That’s why even though we have changed the name, the whole idea behind these events remains the same. Every start-up is composed of a group of energetic entrepreneurs who firmly believe in their ideas, and just need the space to share them with the world. Due to the current COVID-19 situation, we are running this series of events entirely online. We were very excited to launch this series of Webinars, which we are sure will bring fruitful collaborations between start-ups and investors!

As we mentioned before, the start-up selected for this year’s kick-off meeting was Galventa. Sascha Fritsche, Galventa’s co-founder and CEO, wonderfully pitched for all attendees. Their mission is to develop, manufacture, and market products with tailored release patterns based on micro pellets. Their galenic innovation allows them to establish time-controlled release systems containing active pharmaceutical ingredients (API). Their first nutraceutical product (The Swiss Caffeine Clock) is for those who seek to control their sleep-wake cycle and wake up with ease. It is the only scientifically proven food supplement that empowers you to manage your wake-up process. Unlike stimulants, other sleep-aids, or your alarm clock, The Swiss Caffeine Clock doesn’t disturb your sleep but aligns your sleep-wake cycle to your lifestyle (based on patented, cutting edge pharmaceutical technology


If you share Galventa‘s dream to empower your bodily autonomy and free yourself of wake-up difficulties, Galventa is the right investment for you!

We want to warmly thank Sascha, who has given us this morning a great comprehensive view of Galventa. We wish you the best of luck with your project! We also want to thank the attendees for joining us today and for their active participation in the Q&A round.
