Helvetia and IFJ intend to maintain their strategic partnership in the long term. This cooperation strengthens Helvetia's support for SMEs and the services it provides for them. IFJ and Helvetia aim to consolidate their position as expert partners for start-ups and SMEs, thus making a sustainable contribution to the promotion of the Swiss business landscape.
Adding value for start-ups and SMEs
In the past 31 years, IFJ has helped over 150,000 entrepreneurs to achieve independence, making it the preferred first port of call for start-ups in Switzerland. IFJ's many partnerships enable it to provide comprehensive start-up support, free of charge. In addition to start-ups, another central task is its support for fledgling companies throughout all entrepreneurial phases.
In IFJ, Helvetia is gaining a partner with many years' experience in the field of start-up promotion and support for SMEs, whose needs it knows inside out. The cooperation gives Helvetia broader access to two core target groups: start-ups and SMEs. It also enables Helvetia to support its clients in the insurance/administration sector from the outset, and to help them to achieve their business ambitions. "Our partnership with IFJ", says Adrian Kollegger, Head Non-Life Helvetia Switzerland, "reinforces our expertise in the SME business segment. The cooperation creates new opportunities for both partners, as well as valuable synergies between us. This offers clear added value, for IFJ's start-up entrepreneurs as well as our SME clients."
