Haelixa AG - Switzerland
Michela Puddu is Co-founder and CEO at Haelixa, a spin-off of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH Zurich) that provides reliable solutions to ensure consumer good supply chain integrity and traceability, with special focus on sustainable products such as organic cotton.
Co-inventor of the Haelixa technology, Michela earned her Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering at ETH Zurich. She has later received funding from the ETH Foundation and from the Gebert Rüf Foundation in order to convert the technology into marketable products and services. Michela and her co-founder raised about €2m funding equity free before closing the first investment round for Haelixa in summer 2018 with Clariant and ZKB. The technology is now commercial.
