Why AIMS Management S.A.
Our offering
The AIMS Management S.A. provides equity capital in order to help dynamic firms grow and succeed.
If an entrepreneur with an innovative idea is seeking to start a new company, or for existing enterprises seeking to expand, turnaround or revitalize, we can provide the solution by acquiring equity stakes through a share capital increase or convertible bonds.

What differentiates us from lenders (bankers)?
Obtaining venture capital financing is very different from raising debt (for example, obtaining a bank loan) in the sense that venture capitalists invest in firms in exchange for an equity stake, and thus are particularly interested in the growth and profitability of that firm. As opposed to venture capitalists, lenders (bankers) have a legal right to interest payments on the loan amount as well as capital repayment, irrespective of the success or failure of a business (through pledges, mortgages, etc.).
