Starmind with strong growth a prominent new chairman

Due to the surge in remote work caused by Covid-19, employees use Starmind to harness the expertise of all of their co-workers resulting in a 100% increase in usage. Andreas Meyer, former CEO of the Swiss Federal Railways (SBB), will in his new role as Chairman of the Board help to scale-up the company.

Recent studies show that the agility of large organizations is negatively impacted by the shift to remote work. Employees tend to limit knowledge exchange to their immediate team. Information silos, lack of innovation, and up to 2.5 hours of productivity loss per day from each employee searching for required information are among the consequences. Starmind’s AI solution helps to overcome these negative effects. It learns continuously who knows what within a company, connects the know-how of the entire workforce and enables all employees to access the collective intelligence of their organization. Customers in over 100 countries including Telefónica, Swisscom, the United Nations (UN) and the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), rely on the solution.

"We have seen an 100% increase in usage of Starmind networks during the Covid-19 months and are confident that Starmind will become a necessity for any organization with remote workers”, said Starmind CEO and Co-Founder, Marc Vontobel. "We welcome Andreas as our Chairman. He will support our growth strategy and bring in his C-Level perspective to further develop our solutions for complex organizations with his vast experience on digital transformation“, said Marc Vontobel. 

Andreas Meyer stated: "Starmind has a proven technology, developed by its founders at ETH Zurich and University of Zurich, already used by numerous international customers. It is now a matter of scaling up. The Starmind solution connects all employees directly with each other without the involvement of superiors. During Covid-19 times this becomes key to substitute informal information exchanges and to connect home-offices. Starmind‘s solution supports creative work and allows for significant productivity gains for faster and better access to know-how and experience on all levels of organizations”.
