Redalpine expands leadership team with Bettina Curtze joining as Partner and CFO


Bettina Curtze, Redalpine's new Partner and CFO


Swiss firm Redalpine, one of Europe’s leading venture capital investors since 2006, today announced the addition of Bettina Curtze as Partner and CFO to its leadership team. Bettina will be a member of the investment committee, work closely with portfolio companies, and lead all non-investment activities for the fund. 


Most recently, Bettina was CFO at Aviv Group, which is part of Axel Springer Group and includes digital real-estate classifieds such as Groupe SeLoger, Meilleurs Agents, Immowelt, Immoweb and Yad2. She currently serves on the Supervisory Board of JobRad Holding SE as well as publicly listed Bike24 Holding AG. Prior to that, Bettina was Senior Vice President of Finance and Investments at Rocket Internet, where she was responsible for corporate finance, investments, capital raising, capital markets transactions, investor relations, and communications. She has a background in investment banking at Goldman Sachs and Barclays, holds an MBA from Columbia Business School, and is a Certified Public Accountant in New York State.


Peter Niederhauser, Founder and Managing Partner at Redalpine, said: “Bettina’s exceptional track record and extensive experience within the finance and startup realm match our ambitions and will help propel Redalpine to the next level. Moreover, she deeply aligns with our purpose to empower GameChangers and our company culture, even sharing our love of the outdoors and sports. We are delighted to welcome her to the leadership team.”


Bettina Curtze, Partner and CFO at Redalpine, said: “Europe has a vibrant venture capital scene, in particular for early-stage investment, where Redalpine truly stands out through its time-proven and unique approach to investing. By concentrating on the convergence of software and science in its investment strategy, Redalpine has consistently delivered strong returns for each of its funds, achieving top quartile results in their respective vintages since 2006. I am greatly looking forward to joining this highly successful team and contributing to Redalpine’s success.” 


One important area of focus for Bettina will be Redalpine’s Summit Fund, which launched in 2022 and has a target size of CHF 1 billion over time. It is structured as an evergreen (open-ended) fund, allowing investors to gain exposure to a highly diversified portfolio of early- and growth-stage companies, predominantly in the European technology and biotech industries. A key differentiator relative to typical closed ended private equity funds is that investors can expect to benefit from distributions of realized investment gains, reinvestment of capital, and partial liquidity of shares.
