about us

Corporate Finance and Business Development

Dragon Finance A.G. is a Swiss-based company, specialising in Corporate Finance and Business Development activities focusing in the life science sector. It provides best-practice solutions through its team and network of associates.

Dragon Finance is an elite group of senior executives with actual deal-making experience in the industry at the corporate HQ level. We work closely with our clients to put together collaborations and financing in the sectors we specialise. Dragon Finance has an extensive list of contacts at the senior corporate level, on a worldwide basis and across the industry, as well as the financing community. The team's executives have put together numerous deals, including R&D collaborations, strategic alliances, product licensing, acquisitions, disposals, financings and local geography partnering, with NPVs adding to billions of dollars and have expertise in taking companies public.

The need in the industry for facilitating transactions, research collaborations, and the sourcing of finance for smaller companies was the driving force behind the foundation of Dragon Finance in 2009. Dragon Finance can assist investors' portfolio companies to raise further finance through new investors and/or corporate deals that also facilitate appropriate exit strategies and provide validation for public markets. Corporate deals are crucial to small companies and investors therefore can and do play a key role in driving corporate deals, much like they drive IPOs. There is an underlying need for alliances on the part of large corporations in order to fuel growth through access to new products and technologies. Whereas the need for partnerships in general has become the norm in the industry, it is still a very specialised field, where people with expertise are crucial for success and internal company resources are often in need of additional support.
