EIKYU GmbH

IT company founded in the end of 2010 providing services in Web Engineering especially in TYPO3 web design. Collaborative communications for SMEs started with Zimbra and since 2011 – as the first Google Apps Reseller in Basel – EIKYU integrates and consults SMEs on Google Apps for Business. In 2012 we opened a branch in Jinan, China in order to provide services in a different market. Increase the awareness of TYPO3 in the chinese market is one of the biggest challenges we currently face.



Laktoseintoleranz Schweiz

Launched a swiss lactose intolerance blog/magazine in 2010. Providing product news and reviews, recipes and news in German. Started because the product variety at this time was quite low in Switzerland and there was the need for advice and the satisfaction of the “Where 2 find the right product” need. Nowadays the hype has already been recognized by the leading supermarkets, so it became mainly an information / awareness and recipes platform.



BloggerJobs

BloggerJobs is a free job portal for blogger, journalists or companies to post jobs in online sector (Ex: Social Media Manager). The portal was made because of the lack of specialised portals. Another benefit is that the job-ads are visible a limited time, so you do not have to browse or search in thousands of job ads. The ads are constantly deleted after 30 days. Of course you can disable this function, if you are a magazine who is constantly looking for guest bloggers.


Looking for a partnership?

We are constantly looking for entrepreneurs with outstanding business ideas. We can provide office space in Basel, latest standards in IT Infrastructure and web servers and in-depth know-how in starting and branding a business in the swiss market.
