Beekeeper Workplace Software Wins Top 100 Startup Award

We are proud to announce that Beekeeper workplace software has ranked 8th in the Top 100 Startup Awards, and that we have been recognized as one of the most promising Swiss technology startups. The employee app is considered the number one mobile solution for optimizing internal communication for non-desk workforces.

Beekeeper brings the digital workplace to dispersed frontline workers and desk-based teams for organizations of every size, in more than 130 countries. Best of all, Beekeeper workplace software guarantees mobile accessibility for frontline workers without a company e-mail address.

At the presentation of the Top 100 Startup Awards, which is awarded annually by the Swiss startup platform startup.ch, Beekeeper reached the 8th place from over 100,000 startups. “We are honored by the Top 100 Startup Award. It is a tribute to the dedication of each and every one of our employees and confirms our vision of providing better access to internal communication for non-desk workforces everywhere,” said Cristian Grossmann, CEO and co-founder of Beekeeper.

Beekeeper Startup: An Operational Communication Platform for Your Digital Workplace

The Beekeeper startup now employs more than 120 people across the globe and has been developing a digital communications platform for over five years to bring existing systems and communication channels together on a secure and intuitive platform. Beekeeper digitizes the traditional workplace of commercial employees.

Be it a smartphone, laptop, or digital signage screen, Beekeeper reaches and connects every single employee in real time, regardless of location or department. In addition to its headquarters in Zurich and its location in the Bay Area digital workplace technology hub, the company opened offices in the cities of Berlin and London last year, and doubled its number of employees.

Beekeeper Mobile Solution Secures Series A Financing

Another milestone worth noting at this time is the completion of Beekeeper’s $8 million Series A funding round led by Keen Venture Partners. Other investors were Swisscom Ventures, Fyrfly Venture Partners, Polytech Ecosystem Ventures, and b-to-v Partners. As Business Angels, the company was able to acquire Skype founder Niklas Zennström, former Hybris CEO Ariel Lüdi and Delivery Hero CEO Niklas Östberg. This funding round was invested in Beekeeper’s global expansion and further development of our internal communication platform.
