The Swiss Startup, Beekeeper, known for its mobile-first communication platform, has won a pitch organized and hosted by ISS A/S, Heineken and a global bank. The event took place in the inspiring atmosphere of the ISS’s innovation lab Corporate Garage.

The goal of the pitch was to help startups and large enterprises collaborate on a real project, as against the conventional award of a monetary prize. Heineken employs a lot of non-desktop workers and has already started testing the app with the aim of reaching every shift, location, and language through real-time, one-on-one and group messaging. With the hope that the app’s features would convince Heineken in the 100-day trial to implement the Beekeeper app for their internal and operational communication worldwide.

“It’s a great and sustainable format for a startup competition”, says Mila Nussbaumer, Switzerland Country Manager at Beekeeper and adds: “we’d like to see more of these.”
