The secrets of our success

Experience, joint motivation, tech & platform expertise

Secret #1 - Platform Economy Toolset

Our Platform Innovation Kit (PIK) is the most advanced toolset for the platform economy – based on the experience of >250 platforms and used by more than 100.000 users worldwide making it the most advance business tool for platforms & digital ecosystems

Secret #2 - Fast time-to-market

Our fast time-to-market approach is based on best practice studies of fast product teams in the Silicon Valley. The FTTM methodology is an “add-on” for agile product teams allowing them to accelerate their go-to-market and to lower the costs-of-delay. We enable teams in 3 to 4 months to apply the principles and get used to the framework.

Secret #3 - Tech Stack

To speed-up the technical development of a platform we built a re-useable tech stack allowing you to launch within weeks. The backend tech stack provides platform common features like user management, transaction management, matchmaking options, etc. You can then focus on the unique frontend without dealing with the hazzle to build your own backend from scratch.

Our Mission

Create change with a purpose​

Building Sustainable Platforms

We care about sustainability and having a positive impact. Every platform we build respects at least one of the UN Sustainable Development Goals and will help to make the world a better place.

Strenghten the european Economy

70% of the unicorn startups during the past years have been platforms. Here lies a huge potential to make our economy stronger and protect it against crises and the dominance of foreign corporations.

Backbone of a new, digital economy

To us digitisation means more than just introducing a new software. Platforms offer the opportunity to create a whole new business and secure the future of millions of jobs within traditional companies.
