audvice unlocks the power at work to help companies build the ultimate knowledge base. Founded in 2018 by Sophie Bolzer, audvice makes it easy to record, share and listen to onboardings, trainings and updates that come perfectly structured in playlists with bite-sized tracks.
The startup first received international attention after winning the Red Bull Basement Finals in 2019 and is backed by investors such as Cusp Capital, CapitalT & TinyVC. Especially in times of flexible working, audvice enables companies to create context and closeness through the power of voice.
audvice was founded
Sophie Bolzer founded audvice. The initial idea: making it really easy for students to record, share and listen to study material to learn smarter and make most of their time.
The first product was launched. audvice partnered up with university lectures who started using the app for blended & flipped learning in class. In December audvice won the Red Bull Basement finals in Toronto and first received international attention. Soon companies followed and wanted to adopt the software solution for internal communication and learning purposes.
From Students to Companies
The rapid development of the first corporate clients, among the Fortune500 companies made audvice pivot from a student app to a B2B SaaS solution with a sustainable business model.
Active usage and customer feedback allowed the company to speed up product development and tailor it to business needs. The steadily growing audio-boom was even more fueled by the pandemic and increased the demand for the product. In October audvice secured funding by European venture capitalists responsible for investments in companies, such as Zalando, Delivery Hero or Klarna to further expand the team and enhance product development.
After growing their team from 4 to 14 talents audvice launched their scalable enterprise solution with new design, more functionality and enhanced security features in June 2022.
