Companies are receiving fewer and fewer applications for apprenticeships or vacant positions. On the other hand, Generation Z cannot always identify with the established application process. JOBIN HOOD bridges the gap and makes it easy for students to contact attractive employers in the region, especially in the modern communication behaviour of Generation Z on smartphones and in a simple and understandable language.

In addition, is a cross-sector channel that gives companies a stage to present themselves to the young target group. Of course, the tool is free of charge for the users, but the companies pay for the marketing stage and also receive direct potential applicants via chat.

We are building an online planning tool to develop and evaluate energy decisions. Manufacturing companies rely on external consultancies and printed one-shot plans to execute their energy strategy – we help them make strategic decisions themselves and adapt their strategy to changing circumstances.

Specifically, our tool advises manufacturing companies when and where to build what amount of PV, battery storage, gas turbines, heat pumps, wind turbines, and other technologies. Our tool also suggests what purchase strategy would fit best and what return on investment to expect from efficiency measures.

Our software enables them to create a digital twin of their energy infrastructure, identify cost, emission, and risk drivers, and evaluate measures to tackle them. In addition, our software notifies companies about the impact of shifting conditions like exploding gas prices and advises on how they should react.

Thus our tool shortens decision cycles and enables C-level to navigate their company through turbulent energy transitions.

Siip Group

Two Value Propositions (VP) are offered to different Customer Segments with different Revenue Streams, one of them being free-of-charge (the end-user). Non-paying Customer Segments are subsidised by paying customers (p X q and/or subscription fee) in order to attract the maximum number of users. The VP for the end-user encompasses 1) a verified digital identity in the Siip app on your mobile phone with control over your own data enabling you to identify yourself or comply (e.g. age check) online, 2) speed and convenience in data sharing and in different (online) processes such as onboarding or registration, login, physical access, online check-in or making transactions and reservations. The VP for companies encompasses 1) Know Your Customer and Know Your Visitor, 2) efficiency and convenience in a customer journey that requires identification, authentication or personal identifiable information (e.g. onboarding, logging in, contracting or making transactions), 3) compliance with law and regulation made easier and more efficient (e.g., GDPR or night registration), 4) a wider reach (not only knowing the buyer of tickets, but know all your visitors).

Over the last two years, we have been able to support our customers, such as Microsoft, T-Systems and Bechtle, in project business within a proof-of-concept. Within 18 months, we were able to increase the price for these pilot projects by 1,000 percent.

Since the beginning of this year, we have been focussing on the sale of our specially developed Software-as-a-Service product. By the end of this year, we will be able to support ten customer projects – our early adopters – in using our software. The most important goal in 2022 is to lead SYNTINELS to product market fit by the end of the year.

We are already realising monthly recurring revenues (MRR), which makes our business model scalable in the long term and permanently useful for our customers.

The early adopters are using our solution this year for a heavily discounted price, as they primarily pay with their time and given feedback on the software.

The real estate industry is facing major challenges: There is a shortage of living space, approval processes take too long, land sealing is very high and too few sustainable materials are still being used in construction.

Our company SYTE offers an AI-supported software solution for public authorities, real estate developers, brokers, planners and investors to identify redensification potential of properties – in real time. The existing building stock is also taken into account in order to ensure sustainable development and to keep land sealing to a minimum.

Taking into account local building laws, climatic influences and economic efficiency, SYTE calculates the optimal possible utilisation for a plot of land, taking into account the surrounding buildings.

With this solution, it is possible to identify potential housing more quickly, speed up the approval processes and, by building on top of the existing stock, sustainable lightweight materials such as wood are more strongly promoted.
