The digital platform for employee social engagement

Graduated from Dauphine School in Paris where she studied Banking & Finance, Nadia worked in the oil industry for about 6 years as a trader-assistant. Not satisfied about the corporate environment, she left and launched La Garde-Robe LGR. This was one year ago in Geneva.

With experience working in the food and beverage industry both in kitchens and service Naomi witnessed every day the enormous amount of edible food that is being thrown away. This has led her to commit herself to reducing the avoidable food waste in this sector. The environmental impact that KITRO could have inspires her to push it to its full potential and leave a positive footprint.

After finishing his studies as a Biomedical Engineer at EPFL Niklas travelled the world for 1 year, working with 12 NGOs in various fields of volunteering. He founded Share A Dream beginning of 2016 with 3 friends to help local NGOs around the world to communicate about the great things they are doing. 2 years later, Share A Dream has merged with another start-up to become Alaya and is now the leading technological solution for corporate philanthropy and employee volunteering in Switzerland.
