Based on the shores of lake Zürich with partners world-wide, Xandance & Partners connects family offices and venture capital companies globally. We source and share select investment opportunities, private transactions, and direct investments in the alternative investment space.
The companies in our portfolio go through a multi-stage vetting phase before we start working with them to acquire additional funding and partners by connecting family offices, VC’s etc. from our network, while also investing in them ourselves.
We are industry agnostic, but predominantly work with companies that have a finalized product, proven business model, an excellent executive team and are now looking to grow.
We identify direct investments and select fund opportunities to facilitate the development of a greener and more sustainable economy.
Investing in a Sustainable Future – Where We Live, Eat, and Produce Sustainably, Locally, and Healthily.
