TX Group is the leading private Swiss media group. Founded in 1893, TX Group today employs around 3'400 people in Switzerland, Denmark, Luxembourg, Germany, Austria, Israel and Serbia. Since 2000 the company is listed on the Swiss stock exchange, but still a family-run business.

The media industry was the first to be hit with full force by digitalization. Revenues from advertising and classifieds are shifting from print to digital - TX Group recognized this development early on and reacted accordingly.

In addition to popular daily and weekly newspapers and magazines, TX Group operates a broad portfolio of leading digital platforms in Switzerland and internationally, such as Doodle, Zattoo, Homegate, Jobs.ch, ricardo.ch and tutti. As one of the leading digital media houses in Europe, we always want to be at the forefront of innovation and technology. Therefore, we continue to invest in promising start-ups and support our existing portfolio by identifying trends at an early stage. And in this, we need your support!
