The round was led by Supermoon Capital (USA), the world’s first fund focused on sleeptech, and deep tech investor Creadd Ventures (Switzerland) with participation from existing investor Zürcher Kantonalbank.

With their support, we are well-positioned to accelerate the deployment of our groundbreaking solutions, ultimately improving patient outcomes and advancing healthcare practices.”

“We selected Aesyra as the first investment of Creadd Ventures since it perfectly fits our philosophy to invest in companies that have the potential to make a profound impact on the quality of life of patients,” said Lorenzo Leoni, founder and managing partner at Creadd Ventures.
