When we established Belayer, we wanted to show our investors that this is a new and challenging road that we will walk together,
from start to finish.
The word “belayer” comes from mountaineering lingo and is used to name the person who secures the rope when we climb up.
This is our way to show the ambition and determination to support our clients on this new adventure.
