In the summer term 2010 the concept handed in by the start-up LinQuire made it into the group of the final four at the first business plan competition at the HPI. The founders Benjamin Eckart (27), Jan Brunnert (28) and Philipp Mayer (22) have developed a software for linking knowledge in companies. It is intended to dramatically reduce the effort of finding specific knowledge within the company.
Eckart, Brunner and Mayer have now received an EXIST start-up grand amounting to 90.0000 Euro. They are supported in terms of living costs, material expenses and coaching. The EXIST start-up grands are a support program of the Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology (BMWi) and is co-financed by funds provided by the European Social Funds.
LinQuire is intended to drastically reduce the required time for finding and sharing specific knowledge. At the same time it promises to foster the culture of knowledge sharing. If a question is addressed to the innovative software system, it automatically looks for the most competent persons in the house and supports a short and effective knowledge exchange within spontaneously founded work groups.
