Our Story

It all began in 2014, when our founders Christian, Basil and Stefan introduced the first iPads for continuing education programs at the University of St. Gallen. In 2016, MaxBrain was founded to intuitively digitize continuing education offerings. Since 2019, the new product MaxBrain Classroom has been the technological flagship used by many corporate and educational customers in Europe. In the near future, MaxBrain Classroom will digitize international education and training. The guarantors for this success story are our wonderful customers: Visionary and always ready for a challenge.

Memberships

Open ecosystems will fundamentally shape the future of EdTech. Accordingly, it's vital for all players and customers to leverage the full innovation potential of the industry to be competitive in the long run. We closely work with universities, EdTech accelerators and colliders as well as local start-up ecosystems to constantly drive product innovation.

Swiss EdTech Collider

The Swiss EdTech Collider is Switzerland’s first collaborative space dedicated to ambitious entrepreneurs transforming education and learning through technology. Located in the EPFL Innovation Park just a few steps away from EPFL’s Center for Digital Education, the collider provides a modern coworking space to its members ranging from early-stage to established startups. Unlike a classical startup incubator or accelerator program, it offers ongoing support and access to edtech experts, industry leaders and investors.

HSG Spin-Off

The University of St.Gallen issues the Spin-Off label to companies based on a set of key criteria. Innovation, entrepreneurial responsibility, sense making, startup maturity, and a vital importance of the HSG affiliation are required to obtain the label.

YES!Delft

YES!DELFT is the leading tech incubator in Europe with 9 focus areas. It enables tech startups in Blockchain, Artificial Intelligence, BioTech, CleanTech, MedTech, EdTech, Aviation, Robotics and Complex Technology. In these fields it provides startups with 360 degree support: custom startup programs, full-lifecycle services such as recruitment and funding, access to market and capital, and a community of experts, corporate partners and mentors.
