All VC funds are a source of capital. Ours is also a bridge to the capital markets.
Bridging investors to founders, and founders to capital markets
At Heliad AG we are on a mission to expand the traditional venture capital model by making it more inclusive towards public investors, while offering unique support to founders in navigating capital markets. Our backgrounds as banking and financial specialists with over 50 years of experience in equity and debt markets enable us to guide founders through the intricate financial landscape at the most critical moments of expansion.
But that’s not all that makes Heliad stand out. Our vehicle is listed on the German stock exchange, offering public investors a rare chance to directly engage in the venture capital growth that they were previously excluded from. Our vision is to seamlessly merge venture capital and capital markets to the benefit of investors, entrepreneurs, and society at large.

OUR PHILOSOPHY AND APPROACH
Why over 5000 investors have given us their backing
At Heliad, we understand that transformative companies make significant strides pre-IPO, often excluding many investors from their most value-creating years. We’re here to change that. Through our unique position as a publicly listed venture investor, we democratize access to high-growth ventures while also connecting trailblazing founders to the capital markets during peak phases of company growth. This positions us as an entrepreneur’s very own internal capital markets partner. By combining the advantages of public investment with early-stage growth access, we don’t just elevate businesses and investors; we support visionaries shaping core industries of the future.
