The investors include Bernd Zierhut, managing director of the Wels-based mineral oil dealer Doppler, Stephan Kubinger from the IFN window network and Silke Greiner from the A&S investment company. Florian Wimmer, founder of the Linz crypto start-up Blockpit, is also there. According to the investors, only five to ten percent of all services in the business area have been digitized so far. That’s why HalloSophia has a lot of potential.
The start-up offers a digital consulting platform for companies and makes consulting services available to them at a fixed price. The platform lists content and advice on marketing, IT, finance, accounting, research and leadership.
The aim is to address the self-employed, start-ups, small and medium-sized companies as well as large corporations. The start-up not only handles the consulting process between two interested parties, but also bookkeeping, consulting units and payment.
According to the young company, HalloSophia comes from “Hello, Sophisticated Advisor” and was founded in 2020 at the beginning of the corona pandemic. The team around Managing Director Markus Waghubinger comprises 15 employees. The head office is in the Linzer Tabakfabrik, and the company has another location in Vienna.
