Claudia Treuthardt’s Heippa gets a kick-start!

Media Lab student Claudia Treuthardt’s Heippa concept will be heading to SXSW Interactive held in Austin, Texas.

Heippa won the Future Infinite conference competition for students in 2014. Heippa has been selected by Finpro’s Team Finland as one of the Finnish start-ups to be present at the NordicMade Booth during the Interactive Trade Show 11.3.-15.3.2016.

The original concept for Heippa has evolved since winning the award. The soon to be published application for Android has been designed in close collaboration with non-governmental organisations. Heippa Mentor App is free to use and it offers a confidential and anonymous service for individual users to seek advice, coaching and mentoring. For organisations and corporations Heippa offers a platform, which is dedicated for mentoring and coaching. It is a response to the identified need for a confidential communication tool, which is capable of measuring impact.

SXSW Interactive festival is an annual global event for the digital creatives who push the cutting edge of technological change. Last year SXSW was attended by over 100,000 visitors, with over 2,000 bands performing, with 102 movie premiers, with 2,700 Interactive speakers and panelists, and with over 8,000 media representatives present.
