We’re Partnering With Europe’s Innovators

SkyHive is thrilled to be working with Kickstart Innovation — one of the leading innovation platforms in Europe – along with cutting-edge companies from 11 countries.

Kickstart—out of Zurich, where SkyHive Co-Founder & CTO Mohan Reddy joined the group this year—brings together public and private organizations, startups, investors, and experts, with the shared ambition to deliver next-generation products and services and have a meaningful impact at scale. Kickstart runs six verticals: New Work & Learning, Finance & Insurance, Food & Retail, Health & Wellbeing, Smart Cities, and Intrapreneurship.  

This year, the 55+ partnerships Kickstart announced included:

- A  compostable-bag company partnering with a retailer to expand its use of sustainable bags

- Two companies partnering to improve medication safety for senior citizens

- A pilot aimed at improving the intelligence of radiators to save energy

The  SkyHive  partnership  involves  PostFinance,  one of Switzerland’s leading financial institutions.  PostFinance will collaborate with SkyHive on a skill-management  pilot  to unleash human potential and future-proof its IT workforce. SkyHive’s patented workforce operating system helps enterprises, governments, and educational institutions by providing real-time data on skills.
