Press release, July 21, 2022 - Last May, Neobrain launched The Factory, to federate and interconnect an ecosystem of complementary HR solutions. With this project, the scale-up wants to provide HR departments with a clear map of available solutions and the links that can exist between them. Within a few weeks, Neobrain received about twenty applications. After several selection phases, including the famous Pitch stage in front of a jury composed of HRDs, analysts, partners and industry professionals, 5 start-ups were selected. Jeekan, Offishall, Pitchboy, Reflect and TestUnMétier will join The Factory in September.

For this first year, Neobrain has selected startups with complementary positions to its expertise. But they are also players involved in subjects that are of great concern to HRDs: mastering data , which has become truly strategic in recent years, managing new ways of working, reducing the carbon footprint of companies - corporate eco-mobility, mobility - via immersion - professional (internal or external) or the creation of new learning formats such as " immersive learning "...

Who are they? Why them?

The possibilities of combining our expertise are endless: identify, support and develop skills employees in a hybrid work world for starters! Being accompanied and supported by a scale-up like Neobrain will allow us to continue to convince as many people as possible! says Audrey BARBIER-LITVAK, CEO and co-founder of Offishall.

Today, the skills that we will identify and the ones we will train employees on are the ones companies want and are looking for. Thanks to The Factory, PITCHBOY and Neobrain have a unique value proposition, centered around conversational experiences, the real development of skills and data. We look forward to working with their teams," said Homeric DE SARTHE, President of PITCHBOY.

The first is technological, because when we met with the Neobrain team, we wanted to create a common connector to make our tool easier to integrate. The second reason is commercial. We have just launched the project and it is certain that an alliance with Neobrain will be a real plus. They will be present on the skills side and we will complement their expertise on the data visualization side! says Léopold ADAM, CEO of Reflect.
