WHO IS DR. ALFRED SCHEIDEGGER? Meet the Nextech Invest Private Equity Investment Team

Meet the only Swiss investment fund manager with a black belt achieved at an exclusive karate club in Japan! Find out how he did it and meet the rest of the Nextech Oncology private equity fund investment  team.   This bonus segment post picks up from where the previous Nextech Invest overview episode, “HOW TO INVEST IN CANCER” left off.  Scott Arnell takes you behind the scenes at the Nextech Invest headquarters in Zurich to delve into the backgrounds of CEO Alfred Scheidegger and his team of experienced biotech private equity investors who launched the world’s first private equity healthcare investment fund focused solely on late-stage biotech R&D cancer treatment company investments achieving exits through trade sales to major pharma within three years.

In this segment, you will meet Alfred Scheidegger on a more personal level as he describes his formative education, doctoral studies in Japan, why he speaks fluent Japanese and his early days in the pharmaceutical industry in Basel, Switzerland that put him on the path to launching Nextech Invest in 1998 from which he launched three healthcare biotech investment funds.  You will also get an impromptu tour of the Nextech Invest headquarters office and meet the key members of the investment team: Myoung-Ok Kwon, Managing Partner; Rudolf Gygax, Managing Partner; Mátyás Végh, Managing Partner; Roland Ruckstuhl, Chief Financial Officer; and Camille Therre, Associate.

You will be able to get a good feel for team Alfred has assembled, their extensive vertical experience in the cancer product and oncology drug development investment space and ability to achieve investment exits via trade sales to major pharmaceutical companies.  You will also find out first hand why Alfred took 50 kicks to the stomach in Japan and if you hang on long enough, you’ll see Scott Arnell taken down by Camille Therre’s martial arts expertise.
