Beekeeper is a digital workplace app that digitizes the non-desk workforce by connecting operational systems and communication channels. Founded in 2012 and spun out of ETH Zurich, Beekeeper’s mission is to help geographically distributed workforces and non-desk employees feel as if they were sitting right next to each other.

The story

When we met Cris and Flavio, the founders of Beekeeper, we quickly realized that their company was addressing a huge part of the global workforce...

A part that had largely been forgotten by digital technology.

Their vision was compelling: build a mobile employee communication and collaboration hub for the two billion people who don’t work from an office.

We knew that the market for collaboration software wasn’t exactly a white space. However, we built confidence in the team’s laser-focus on its underserved end-users. Their strong execution capabilities and vision of building something big and meaningful set Beekeper apart.
