Operaize celebrates its 3rd anniversary!

“Only 80% of startups survived after a year”

“9 out of 10 startups fail”

When we read such headlines, we are all proud of our success, the hard work of the entire team and thank our investors and partners for the last three years.

What is the story behind Operaize cognitive operations©?

In 2018, @Christoph Lieth and @Alexander Kouril met at the @Handelsblatt KI conference and found out that they shared a common idea, namely to better address urgent production challenges with AI-based production planning. So, Christoph and Alex met for breakfast at the WDR Funkhaus in Cologne and continued to forge their ideas. When Alex asked whether the two of us would like to build a joint company out of it, Christoph answered with a resounding “yes!“.

Since then, we have gone through all the ups and downs of a startup, including sleepless nights and many positive success stories 🎉

We are looking forward to the next years of optimizing your production planning!
