In 2012, UBS launched the “SEF.Growth” initiative together with the Swiss Economic Forum (SEF), and has continuously developed this further ever since. We offer young companies with excellent potential the opportunity to have their strategy and business plans reviewed by independent experts from the SEF network. The best companies are then awarded the “SEF.High-Potential” label.
For companies recognized as a “SEF.High-Potential”, we have given thought to some special product solutions. In this way, companies’ future prospects are rated more highly than usual in the credit check, for example.
