Empowering Radical Change

Apparently, we are facing the second big transformation in the history of mankind: the breakdown of hierarchical structures. Nobody knows how to deal with it. We believe radical change in businesses and organizations happens by bringing together pioneers, nerds, mavericks, thought leaders, entrepreneurs, misfits, and you – a melting pot of stories written by life.

Why

We want our children to have the ideal
opportunities in their future.

What

We believe in leaders who care for the next generation.

How

With our network of future-proofed leaders we accelerate the mindshift towards the new paradigm.

Core principles

Radical

must be the new normal. Nothing is sacred. The fear of being radical is a 20th century taboo.

Technology

must benefit people.  The Earth is a community, and the value of technological change must be measured by how it benefits, or affects, the entire human community.

Future

begins at the end of this sentence.  The challenges currently facing humanity started in the past and will be solved in the future.  We want the future to be as soon as possible.

Government

is an obsolete technology. Real change, the kind that will both save and transform our world, will come from people across borders working together.

You

are not alone. Worldwebforum is a movement of individuals who have come together because they believe in our mission of empowering radical change.  Will you join us?

Values

Worldwebforum is produced by beecom, a Swiss software company that has shared a close growth journey with global software giant Atlassian. Jay Simons, President of Atlassian, had once  claimed in Barcelona that beecom was their first ever partner. It was at a time when Atlassian had only 25 employees and beecom, 5. Learning a lot from Atlassian, beecom has adopted its values, guiding the way it does business, develop products, and build brands. Unique to beecom and Worldwebforum though are the values of creating a culture of experimentation and never giving-up that have shaped our exceptional story.

Open company, no bullshit

Openness is root level for us. Information is open internally by default and sharing is a first principle. And we understand that speaking your mind requires equal parts brains (what to say), thoughtfulness (when to say it), and caring (how it’s said).

Build with heart and balance

“Measure twice, cut once.” Whether you’re building a birdhouse or a business, this is good advice. Passion and urgency infuse everything we do, alongside the wisdom to consider options fully and with care. Then we make the cut, and we get to work.

Don’t #@!% the customer

Customers are our lifeblood. Without happy customers, we’re doomed. So considering the customer perspective – collectively, not just a handful – comes first.

Play, as a team

We spend a huge amount of our time at work. So the more that time doesn’t feel like “work,” the better. We can be serious, without taking ourselves too seriously. We strive to put what’s right for the team first – whether in a meeting room or on a football pitch.

Be curious and try things

We believe that the proof of the pudding is in the eating. We cultivate a culture of experimentation that pushes us to stay curious and test our ideas. We believe in giving ample room for mistakes that pave the way for learning and improvement.

Never give up

There will be many reasons to hand in the towel but resilience is our strong suit, having encountered many hurdles throughout our company’s history. Our belief that the Internet technology will change the world for the better has never wavered and continues to inspire us to this day.

Our story

produced by beecom

beecom was founded on September 11, 2000 by Fabian Hediger, Andreas Ziltener, and Andreas Heim. Its history is a long tale of resilience that is a source of inspiration to businesses who aspire for incessant innovation and sustained success.

Our Office

Our hub was refurbished in 2018 following a decision to pursue more openness in the way we collaborate whilst keeping our alternative punk attitude.

This has also been extended to our corporate identity which in 2019 was reinterpreted to reflect the boldness and candor of our brand.

“The design of the office has been an experimental and open process. We came up with meaningful ideas, to be applied to encourage relationships between open and closed spaces, light and dark schemes, finally unfolding a radical and inspiring working place.”
