Philipp Rutz founded Okomo in 2018. With Okomo, online visitors can find the right contact person in the company directly on a website and communicate with this person live via chat, audio or even video call, share the screen, exchange data or, if desired, simply make an appointment. The Swiss software company helps companies such as BMW, Siemens or Canon to offer their online customer advice just as easily and personally as on-site. Before Philipp Rutz founded the Swiss SaaS company, he spent over 8 years at Microsoft and lived in Switzerland, England and China. Philipp Rutz studied economics.
Andrea founded Wingwall in summer 2020 together with a business colleague. On the one hand, Wingwall advises and accompanies start-ups and SMEs on topics related to innovation, growth, process management and 360° branding and, on the other hand, supports the development and realisation of new ideas and ventures (company building). In both areas of activity, interdisciplinarity and sustainability – on an economic, social and ecological level – play a central role.
Luckabox can be called the Tinder of transportation. Aike Festini never understood why the customer has to adapt to the delivery service and not vice versa. So in 2017, together with Maite Mihm, she founded Luckabox Logistics AG, a startup that addresses the “last mile” in delivery services. The demand for online deliveries since the Corona pandemic has given Luckabox an increased shipment volume of 2312 percent last year compared to the previous year, and sales increased by 250 percent.
